Anyone have a long(er) lasting solution to covering/sealing a cut thumb?

Asked by Winter_Pariah (2283 points ) March 19th, 2014

I cut off the tip of my left thumb cooking dinner last night (the tip was non retrievable) and now a decent amount of flesh is exposed. I’ve tried gauze and tape, band-aids, superglue, gauze/band aid with superglue, etc (apparently, I’m shedding cells fast enough that the superglue adhesion is rendered moot within an average of 3 hours). I know I should avoid using that hand – specifically the thumb, but work and chores demand its usage. Anyone have a remedy that’ll work? The most irritating thing is the wind. The wind tickles the exposed nerve endings. I do not like being tickled.
