How do you get it off without reopening the cut? Dissolve the adhesive with alcohol?
depends on where the laceration is...and lots of folks are allergic to the adhesive in duct tape.
Superglue works well on superficial cuts...clean it, dry it, apply superglue, then cover it with hypoallergenic tape.
The trick to removing duct tape is to make a “butterfly” =><= bandage to keep it closed....you apply the thicker area on both sides and only a thin area in the middle which goes over the laceration so when you remove it, only a little area of the scar is pulled off...
Caution: superglue glue hurts like H——...and you could end up with a scar.
and if the laceration is into the fat it might work, but if it’s deep into the fat, you might end up with a lot of blood in the fat area, that can end up infected....but if it’s into the muscle you have to suture the muscle closed too...and then there is always a danger of infection...
Peel longitudinally, never laterally.
The adheasive of the tape is also anti-bacterial, because it is designed to be used in applications that have high bacterial populations (return air ducts).
