  • I'd call the doctor's office and ask them.

  • The doctors put glue al over my son's head/hair when they tested him for seizures. Use baby oil. It will take awhile but it works. Afterwards wash her hair really good so you can get it all out. I feel your pain, that glue is really a pain.

  • The adhesives are the WORST part of kids surgeries!!! Ugh! They have adhesive remover in little "alcohol"-type pads. Ask the pharmacist for them. Baby oil works, too...but they are both a pain to get out of the hair once the adhesive is gone. Engineers of the world, unite! Find us something that works for this! Lol....
