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

I am experiencing dry or cracking skin on my butt cheeks. Also I have one darker skin spot on each cheek. There is no itching, no pain at all, but visually and on the touch if feels rough. I am using moisturizer with aloe vera. What can I do more?

Dermatologist: Non-painful, non-itchy skin with a raised, rough surface should be evaluated by a dermatologist or other skin specialist. There are many possible diagnoses that include tumors (benign or malignant), infection, chronic inflammation, or other conditions like psoriasis.

Other moisturizers make my skin break out, will aloe vera gel be effective for me?

Other moisturizers make my skin break out, will aloe vera gel be effective for me?

? maybe: It is difficult to predict if you will have a reaction to aloe vera gel. You may try using it on a non-conspicuous area for a few days and see if you have a reaction. If you do not, then you should be fine using it as needed for moisturizing effects.

Sunburned face peeled 2 weeks ago and I still have red irritated skin underneath. Using panthenol cream and aloe vera. What more can I do?

Sunburned face peeled 2 weeks ago and I still have red irritated skin underneath. Using panthenol cream and aloe vera. What more can I do?

Keep the area moist: The best treatment for a superficial sunburn is to keep the area moist through the use of water-based ointments, such as bacitracin, neosporin, or aquaphor. I would recommend discontinuing the panthenol cream for now, and using aquaphor or bacitracin 2-3 times daily for the next 1-2 weeks. The redness should fade with time as the healing process progresses.

I had a scab, which is removed now and it shows pink skin do I put neosporin on it or aloe vera cream. Is this a scar? How can I prevent it to scar

I had a scab, which is removed now and it shows pink skin do I put neosporin on it or aloe vera cream. Is this a scar? How can I prevent it to scar

Leave it alone: I don't know how severe or large your skin injury was, or where it is on your body. But your skin was/is trying to heal itself underneath the scab, and you removed it before it could do that completely. All new skin is pink, whether or not it's going to scar. It may continue healing ; resolve. Don't use an antibiotic (including ointment) unless it looks infected (oozing pus, swollen, etc.).

Is it ok to layer different moisturizers? I would like to apply an anti-aging and over it another moisturizer with aloe vera to help hidratate

Is it ok to layer different moisturizers? I would like to apply an anti-aging and over it another moisturizer with aloe vera to help hidratate

I do not see why not: Beside the skin moisturizer, do not neglect appropriate hydration, drinking a lot of water, eating a balanced diet with lots of fruits and vegetables, and avoiding long exposure to the sun. Smoking also causes a lot of havoc to the skin.

Sunscreen: If the darker areas are on the face and neck, sun is the most likely cause. You need an excellent sunscreen with SPF of about 50. I suggest looking for zinc or titanium oxide in the ingredients for the best results. If you avoid the sun and wear sunscreen every single day, your skin should gradually even out.

I have a reddish skin and have a lot of pimples on my forehead. I have tired all the methods such as cream, moisturizer. How do I reduce them?

I have a reddish skin and have a lot of pimples on my forehead. I have tired all the methods such as cream, moisturizer. How do I reduce them?

Real acne Rx: Forget creams and moisturizers. They don't work. You're almost a grown man & you have a right to effective rx. Benzoyl peroxide for two weeks, then as that probably won't get the job done, visit your physician. A retinoic acid derivative and/or Clindamycin topically is likely to clear the disease you describe; harder cases respond to systemic antibiotics or accutane. Good luck.

See dermatologist: With a list of the treatments you have tried and how long you used them. Food allergies are not likely the cause of your dry skin. More likely something irritating the skin locally. Wear natural fiber clothes eg cotton and use a mild soap.

Using Aloe (Definition)

Aloe was one of the most frequently prescribed medicines throughout most of the 18th and 19th centuries and it remains one of the most commonly used herbs in the United States today. However, oral use of aloe for constipation is no longer recommended, as it can ...Read more
