Bandage Paste

Synthetic Scabs
  (+2, -3)
(+2, -3)
  [vote for,

A product should exist to synthesize a scab. I think scabs are better than any bandaid there is. I know there is a risk of scars, but this can be fixed with an additive that already exists in some first aid chemicals, i.e. neosporin. If we can create a product such as this we would be able to do away with things like stitches and staples. I think of it more like the "human glue".

Google search for +artificial +scab http://www.google.c...&btnG=Google+Search
3,610 hits in .28 seconds. Oddly, a search for +synthetic +scab returns hits related to wheat diseases. [phoenix, Apr 04 2002, last modified Oct 04 2004]

Collodion http://www.uh.edu/engines/epi608.htm
"Collodion may have been a primitive ancestor of the Band-Aid. But it surely served to spur the imagination. It proved to be a very special muse to 19th-century invention." [baconbrain, Jun 27 2005]

       Baked. Liquid skin... also called liquid bandage. I've had the bottle for 6 years!

       Darn, I thought he wrote 'bondage paste'.

       It would also give you something to pick at when you're bored. Without damaging your actual skin.   

       That could be quite useful, especially for people with OCD who can't stop scratching and picking at themselves.

       Don't let the crackheads get word of this one. Give them hugs instead.

       Someone should make flavored bandage paste. All the scaby tast only with zero calories.

       //A product should exist to synthesize a scab.// Then you should Google for it.   

       "I'll bet you've never heard of collodion. Yet it was quite common in the last century. You made it by dissolving cellulose nitrate in ether and alcohol. You kept it on your medicine shelf and used it to cover cuts. It hardened into a protective shell that stuck to the skin and covered the wound."   

       I've had my bottle of liquid skin for years, too. It reeks of cloves and stings like hell.

       i saw 'bondage paste' too. and the idea's been done. This is more disappointing than my childhood.

       Cyanoacrylate was used during VietNam as a wound glue--- now known as super-glue

       It still is, in both human and veterinary medicine, and in my household.
