Aloe Lotion (Definition)

Aloe gel, made from the central part of the aloe leaf, is a common household remedy for minor cuts and burns, as well as sunburns. It can be found in many commercial skin lotions and cosmetics. Aloe contains active compounds that may decrease pain and inflammation and stimulate skin growth and repair. For this reason, aloe vera gel has gained tremendous popularity for relief of burns, with individual success in helping minor burns. In one study, burn sites treated with aloe healed completely in less than 16 days compared to 19 days for sites treated with silver sulfadiazine. In a review of the scientific literature, researchers found that patients who were treated with aloe vera healed an average of almost 9 days sooner than those who weren't treated with the medicinal plant.

I'm 39 weeks pregnant with two painful hemorrhoids that won't go away. Bought a bottle of witch hazel with aloe Vera and rose petal water. Good or bad?

I'm 39 weeks pregnant with two painful hemorrhoids that won't go away. Bought a bottle of witch hazel with aloe Vera and rose petal water. Good or bad?

Be careful: witch hazel can be soothing but frequent use could cause contact/irritant dermatitis. Same goes for the other two. If you don't use more than 3-4 times a day it is probably ok. Try warm sitz bath, and practice kegel exercise for your anus like you would for your vagina. Before and after a bowel movement, apply Boudreaux's butt paste, which you will need for your baby anyway. ...Read more

Constipated for almost a week. Able to go a little bit. Have hemorrhoids. Is miralax (polyethylene glycol) safe? Wiped and saw a tiny bit of pink blood. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) or aloe jui

Wondering if it's ok to put aloe on a very painful and burning hemorriod?

Wondering if it's ok to put aloe on a very painful and burning hemorriod?

Yes, but better Rx: Aloe may provide some relief but if symptomatic, there are better preparations that often include a corticosteroid such as Hydrocortisone (anusert, anusol, proctosol). In addition, getting to the root of what causes hemorrhoids (constipation, not sufficient fiber, not enough water intake, not enough exercise) should be taken into account to reduce the severity of hemorrhoids. ...Read more

Is it s myth that Aloe Vera Gel helps with glycemic care?

I wouldn't: The idea doesn't make sense, and since this interesting plant is promoted as being of enormous benefit for almost everything, this invites an obvious conclusion. Don't ignore exercise or medication, or spend much money on a perennial "pop" remedy. ...Read more
