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.

Derma Bond Tape

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.
