    Default Tmi question

    A few weeks back I had a csection. A week ago I had to remove the clear sterile sticky tape/bandage off the scar. That took me 25 minutes in the shower...

    Anyhow onto the point of my post. Residual globs of sticky glue remain stuck... To my pubes. And it is uncomfortable/hurts at times. Any idea how I can remove the remaining glue globs without 1) keeling over in pain OR 2) using harsh chemicals that may irritate my scar.

    Thanks in advance. And yes I probably will laugh about this one day...

    Try some oil like olive oil/almond oil. Slowly massage in then get a picking

    If the oil doesn't work, go to a chemist and ask for citrus adhesive remove wipes - or something like that!

    Yep agree with this! I'm surprised they didn't do it in hospital, mine was done on day 5 and they used some wipes to get the rest of the glue off. The chemist should be able to help

    Tea tree or eucalyptus oil are both really good at getting rid of sticky residue. They're both also antiseptic so while they might sting a bit if you get any on your scar they'll be good for it.

    How annoying, mine was taken off in the hospital the day after I had bub. Can you just cut the pubes or is it sticking them down onto your skin? Baby oil would be my first try.

    Easiest thing to do - cut the hair. That's what we tell women to do if it's stuck. We will also give women adhesive removal wipes to take home as well though. If there is still sticky residue, try tea tree oil as it is a natural antiseptic. If your wound is healing nicely it shouldn't sting too much.

    Nail Polish remover but that might fall under harsh chemicals...

    This will kill me! I can't touch the pubes with the glue on it without wincing in pain! - thanks for the suggestion though!
