I have been using spray adhesive for some different crafts lately. I have noticed once it gets on your hands, it is stuck quite well. You can't use rubber gloves, because all you'd do is stick to your project.
Last week, I had been working on a project using spray adhesive. When I went to scrub my hands I couldn't get it off. I used Dawn dish detergent and a scrubby pad, but I still had quite a bit of residue. I found a bottle of lotion and liberally added it to my hands and rubbed it in for about a minute. I washed and rinsed my hands and the residue was gone. Finding this little remedy after battling to get it off made my project much more enjoyable.

Recently I read on this site that Caress soap keeps mosquitoes away, so I went out and bought the bar soap and bath gel. Forget it, it doesn't work on the mosquitoes in Houston! But I started using the bath gel and noticed something unusual.
I had some surgery on a toe and had to use a latex free bandage to wrap it. When I removed the band-aid, I got some of the residue on my thumbnail.

Any suggestions regarding the removal of adhesive residue left behind when removing transdermal pain patches? I have been using Soft Soap with pumice like auto mechanics use for their hands, but that does not always remove all the adhesive residue without an extreme amount of scrubbing.

I've used hand sanitizer to remove glue residue. It works really well.
Skin friendly baby oil, mineral oil, and even vegetable or olive oil and, as already mentioned, use a cotton ball ;-)
I use either non acetone nail polish remover or Goo Gone.
I use a V-Go insulin pump and it sticks to me using adhesive, but I can't get the adhesive residue off my skin which is making my skin extremely irritated and itchy. I have tried the normal alcohol and finger nail polish remover. All of which burn or irritate more. I want to try and stay away from harsh chemicals. Thanks.
Try an ice cube to freeze it, and then pick it off gently. Don't leave the ice on too long.
Try rubbing coconut oil over it then putting a warm compress on it for several minutes.
I would try coconut oil, olive oil or even hand cream.
What about ice? Just leave it on a second or so
A thin layer of old fashioned vaseline may help. Let it sit for a few minutes then apply a warm wash cloth and gently try to remove the residue. Cover the skin that had the residue with Neosporin if you have redness of the skin after the adhesive is removed.
