If you've ever had stitches you know they can hurt- but stitches could become a thing of the past.
Instead, glueing wounds may take over.
Researchers say a medical version of Super Glue is proving superior to stitches.
Not only is it faster, but it's less painful.
A study of 130 patients also found gluing seems to avert some infections that occur in stitched wounds.
The one downside is the glue is weaker than stitches.
The findings appeared in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
