    I'm sure it would be fine any way but do you have those spray on plaster things? That may help.

    Never seen those. I was just thinking putting a huge band-aid on it and call it a day, i just dont want it ripping off in class due to sweat.

    I use "New Skin" paint-on bandage (I think it's better than spray, easier to control) for places where a bandaid would fall off due to sweat, and athletic tape isn't feasible - scalp would be a good example (can't wrap your head in athletic tape).

    Unfortunately, sweat does still weaken its hold - I had a bit I'd had on for most of the day come off near the end of a 2hr judo class. Still, it held up like a champ for most of it. Not sure how well it holds up to friction. You can put on multiple layers.

    A thought - maybe get a cloth swimming cap (rubber would chafe), put bandaids on, and put the swimming cap over it? Might look a little silly though.

    NuSkin spray works. Crazy Glue is used often to close wounds, but I don't think this is deep enough for that.

    I think RJ was being serious with the super glue suggestion.
