Plain yellow mustard on burns (applied within 1/2-1hour). Cool, soothing, speeds healing & reduces scarring. Great for fire spinners.

When I ask how many burns, I mean at BRC.

Oh yes, the Scar story event needs my hubby AAARRRR. He has a few good ones including: what happened when he sat on a glass coffee table and when his father ran him over with the family car.

Uhm, I do hope those are two seperate stories.... :shock: Otherwise, his father must have been REALLY attached to that coffee table! :P

Super Glue works for small cuts.

storebought superglue tends to be made of the cheaper Cyanoacrylates while derma-bond and other surgical adhesives are made from 2-octyl cyanoacrylate or n-butyl-cyanoacrylate.

regular super glue and "derma-bond" the stuff they use at the hospitol aren't exactly the same thing. From what i've read superglue isn't exactly toxic, it just has a much higher percentage of people who suffer irritation of the affected area compared to the dermabond.

i'm a paramedic, and i use regular krazy glue on small cuts to my hands and haven't had any problems. You don't want the glue to contact the broken skin, rather you want to use the superglue on the skin surrounding the wound to keep it closed.

Super glue might even have an antibiotic effect.
Or super glue and duct tape as a quick fix condom!

Except maybe direct pressure using a thumb and forefinger where the nose joins the face for 1-2 minutes (cuts of blood flow). If that doesn't work, then it's time to think about dressings...

I'm not sure how that would work any better than any other dressing. Unless you have really large nostrils and a super dinky tampon (which won't absorb much), theres no way that thing is fitting in your nose.

You are blurring the line between leisure activities and first aid.

I've heard worse ideas for a theme camp.....Perhaps the WhoWhatWhen listing would read:

DAILY, 2:30 to 3:00 PM- Camp NoTex
Come join us for freeform Nasal Dam application! Couples welcome...bring ice or a mixer.
