For some reason there aren't many butterfly-style sutures left on the market, making these the de facto best. I have learned that it's best not to apply a triple-cream antibiotic first, but instead to use Tincture of Benzoin Compound (search for Friar's Balsam, and not tincture of benzoin). This stops the strips from slipping, and protects the wound without smothering it.

These are good to have in a first aid kit to tape together the kinds of minor wounds you'd normally take to the emergency room for stitches. (Sometimes these is all you get at the hospital anyway.) If you still need stitches, but you end up in a waiting room for a long time, you'll be glad you used a few strips - doctors won't stitch wounds that have been open too long.
