Removing contruction glue from dry wall

I have removed old wainscotting in my dinning room and have found that it was applied with both nails and construction glue. How can I remove the left over glue from the dry wall ? I am trying to scrape it off but it seems to be taking the paper off the dry wall also ! How can I remove the glue with minimal damage to the wall ??? I am lost.

Removing contruction glue from dry wall

You can't. Construction adhesive was made to bond with porous materials. You may get lucky with a very sharp scraper blade, but you are still going to have a little damage you'll need to fix.

Removing contruction glue from dry wall

You might need some of this stuff.

PrepRite drywall conditioner:
Penetrates, seals damaged or torn drywall
Eliminates paper bubbles caused by patches and skim coats
Anchors loose paper fibers for easy sanding
Low odor acrylic latex formula

Then skim coat affected areas w/ joint compound.
