In brief: Hospital tape

Hospital tap can be hard to get rid of.
Using rubbing alcohol helps. Sometimes put warm water on it helps too.

In brief: Carefully

I use alcohol wipes to gently rub on the adhesive.
Follow this with soap and water. Some people recommend nail polish remover. This may be absorbed abnormally, so that is not my first choice for at home removal. The adhesive marks will eventually wear off on their own if you did nothing.
