A 34-year-old member asked:

Can you tell me if a child who had head laceration and doctor used dermabond(glue) how long it will take for the wound to heal?

4 days: Head wounds heal fast. Usually after a few days the dermabond will begin to peel off. Don't help it. Let it come off by itself.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

try to keep the area dry so the Dermabond will stay on longer
