A surgical bandage for treating a wound that allows various fluids or fluid-like substances including cyanoacrylate adhesives to be applied. The surgical bandage has a wound treatment portion for being placed over a wound and a place for a flowable cyanoacrylate adhesive or any other fluid or fluid-like substance to be applied to the underlying would (laceration, surgical incision or other tissue separation). A source is used to apply the cyanoacrylate or other fluid to the wound treatment portion flowing through at least one opening of the wound treatment portion to the underlying wound and its surrounding area either by direct application or from a non-contact distance. The surgical bandage allows for direct visualization before, during, and after its application. The surgical bandage allows for removal of blood or any fluid that may be present in, on, or around the wound by blotting or wiping.
