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. However, other studies show mixed results, including at least one study that found aloe actually delayed healing. Aloe is best used for minor burns and skin irritations, and should never be applied ...Read more

Totally safe: Unscented oatmeal extract-containing products such as Aveeno are safe for the vulvar area after shaving. You may also consider trying a better razor in order to avoid having to chafe the skin as much when you shave. Waxing or electrolysis are also safe options to avoid the skin damage caused by repetitive shaving. ...Read more

Bumps on bottom of arms. Not itchy, pink, all on hands. Went to dermatologist & tried coconut oil, oatmeal lotion, fluocinonide, and aloe vera.

Bumps on bottom of arms. Not itchy, pink, all on hands. Went to dermatologist & tried coconut oil, oatmeal lotion, fluocinonide, and aloe vera.

What did the dermato: What did the dermatologist say? None of the treatments you mention are likely to be of benefit for this. Your description is not enough for diagnosis. If your dermatologist is stumped he may ask another dermatologist for a consult. How much does it bother you? If not much distress you may wish to give it some timer. I can't believe any dr would charge you $230! insurance would pay 1/2 this! . ...Read more

I have these razor bumps on my pubic area don't know if I should be concerned about it?

Less often and close: Razor bumps are common. They are not dangerous but are a nuisance. I have heard many recommendations; here are mine culled from my 32 years as a doctor:
Avoid close shaves- use electric foil razor or new twin-blade with foam.
Avoid frequent shaves- wait as long as you can.
Only move the razor ONCE over each skin area.
