Superglue in scalp: The skin normally turns over (renews itself) about every 30 days. This occurs faster in an infant. Don't do anything. Just let the skin grow out and the old skin with the glue will just be shed off. After a few weeks you may want to trim underneath the glue on the newly grown hair to get rid of the glued clumps of hair.
