Soak it in some tepid water and then gently rub from the nose backwards to remove it

Ha whenever my Royal gets some skin stuck on the side of his head he starts rubbing himself against me as soon as I get him out :lol2:.

A quick swim in the sink and then I'll but my index finger under his chin, and he'll tilt his head whilst I rub it with my thumb. That usually brings up enough skin for me to then gently peel it off.

Not sure if your little blighter will be as forthcoming but it's certainly worth a shot.

Let us know how it goes!
