  • Glue! I love that they do this now. Its a lot gentler than stitches, especially for the young ones...its fast, and the scarring usually isn't as bad as if you had to get stitches.

  • Glue, less trauma for her.

  • They treat the cut depending on the size and depth. It was probably not deep enough for stitches, and with stitches, you are not suppose to get them wet. Unrealistic for a child.

  • Glue. My son split his head right above his brow and they glued it.

  • Glue. It's quick, you don't have to hold still while someone sews it shut, you don't have to worry about getting it wet.
