In brief: Skin glue

Just head back to the office if whoever put the material in and just have then deal with it.
I am sure they would be happy to take it off for you.

In brief: Use petrolatum

Petrolatum jelly will dissolve the glue as well but should not be used if it is important to maintain the wound closure.
