Derma Bond Tape White Film?

I had derma bond tape removed and it left a white film... Is that normal? How can I remove it? Also I have white incision gap under my breast... Doctor said it will heal since stitches won't be possible due to wound being wet inside. How do I make sure it does not get worst or infected? I have been using bros iron and gauze coverage.

The film is the dermabond (superglue).

It will peel off quite easily. 

However, because of the issue of an open incision, I would yield to the advice of your surgeon who has actually seen this. If you haven't received instructions, call the office. 

Thanks for the question, best wishes.
