Could you post a Picture of the feet and residue?
Can I have a state where you are located to to find you a list of Herp Vets?
Thank-you usually it takes some special oils as a solvent to dissolve the sealer. It may come off wit the shed when the Lizard. We can try to see if we can loosen it up. We can use some mineral oli on on bad area and see if it helps loosen the residue. Once this is done gently massage it in and see if it comes off. After the oil make sure that you wash the leg off with warm water. If that does not do it, then a Herp Vet visit will be needed. They may have a solvent or possibly have a some grinder that can remove it without injuring the Lizard. You did a great job rescuing him. He does need a UVB light for health if you are planing on keeping him. With his food he needs a calcium supplement dusted on his prey.

I am hoping we can get the sealer off. What I most fear if we do not it can constrict and cause lack of circulation, so we do need to try to either get it off, or have the Vet remove it asap. Please hit reply for any concerns or questions.
