Why use DuraDerm SPORT over superglue or liquid bandages for wounds in a survival scenario?
It’s important to know that DDS is FDA-cleared, meaning it has undergone rigorous testing and has been deemed safe for use. While super glue and liquid bandage might seem like cheaper alternatives, it’s essential to remember that the FDA has not cleared them. If you find yourself in a situation where you need to close a wound and don’t have access to sutures, superglue could do the trick.
According to the Mayo Clinic, super glue “can be a viable option if used under the right circumstances (small and clean cut, not too deep and not infectious).” If you choose household superglue or even over-the-counter adhesive products (liquid bandage), do so with caution and a complete understanding of the risks, including infection and scarring. If the wound is dirty and you put a regular liquid bandage on, then yes, your wound will most likely become infected. Like the old saying “you get what you pay for”, ordinary liquid bandage is not medical grade, nor FDA cleared. DuraDerm SPORT kills bacteria, fungi, and viruses on contact, including superbugs, MRSA, and staph.
Investing in DuraDerm SPORT is like having an insurance policy against infections. The peace of mind it provides is priceless, especially in a survival scenario. You don’t want to risk getting infected and using up your antibiotic supply because you were trying to save a few dollars. By taking preventative measures and using DuraDerm SPORT, you can avoid a lot of trouble in the long run.
