In brief: Sure
Some patients do find that aloe vera gel, lotion, etc.
Helps dry the skin in the involved area and make the problem feel better. However, some people can have a reaction also to the aloe vera, so use with some caution.

In brief: Yes-but
I agree with dr. Shenenberger. But - all sumac plant residue should be removed from the skin first.
Otherwise remaining urushiol will be spread on the skin as you apply the aloe vera- increasing the area effected.
