    Cookie,

    Yes, those glue stains will go away. Give it time, and don't try to scrub it off. Soaking it will speed up the process, but your upper layers of skin are constantly sloughing off and then replacing themselves, so it will just fade and fade until it's gone. The stains will go away in anywhere from a few days to a week, depending on how dark they are.
