In brief: Adhesive allergy

There are special preps for removing such adhesives but simple rubbing alcohol may work just as well.
After adhesive is removed, wash area gently w/ soap & water; pat dry; apply very thin layer of Hydrocortisone cream (otc: cortaid). Be sure to add "adhesive" when listing allergies.
