    Sliced my thumb on the top long curve yesterday, right in the spot where it wouldn't stay and kept reopening. I had previously picked up a couple of the outrageously expensive HemCon band-aids for testing. Torqued the thing down and let it sit overnight. I'm pretty pleased with the results. It coagulated enough to allow me to grasp things without blood getting everywhere. Might be worth looking into for those of you, like myself, who have a tendency to injure themselves habitually.

    (I can't dismiss the fact that the healing might have helped by not moving the thumb overnight. All I can say is that nothing I tried yesterday worked. As a experiment? I guess you could have identical wounds on each thumb and one with a traditional band-aid and one with a HemCon, overnight them, and inspect in morning to see if the Hemcon achieved a greater level of coagulation.)
