Yes, you can.
Use pure aloe vera extract on it, if you can lay your hands straight on a leaf.

Brief Answer:
As below

Detailed Answer:
I can understand.
It is simple folliculitis, just a bad, resistant case of folliculitis.
You do not have to be hesitant or ashamed to go see your doctor, because it is a genuine problem that you are having, and only your doctor can help you out.
I wish I could be there personally, but right now I can just offer guidance and support on the internet.
It feels moist and sweaty because of the infected hair follicles.
It must be truly very uncomfortable, but luckily the solution is out there.
Please get it done.

Hello Doctor, My baby is 10 days old and having a white discharge from left eye and rashes of red patches with white in the middle on body. What could be the reason ?

doctor1 MD

I have already submitted my question to you. Red rash sounds like my symptoms, though it is not Red unless rubbed, aggravated. Clear bumps that get larger, very itchy. I try not to scratch or rub, but the itching is intolerable.

I am a 25 year old female. No history of digestive issues. A few weeks ago, I started having pain associated with my Gallbladder. It wasn't sever enough for my doctor to be worried, but she suggested a diet to help. Along with that diet, I started taking 8oz of Aloe Vera Juice daily. Yesterday, I woke up with sever stomach/intestine cramps. I have had diarrhea that is black. It is chalky... like coffee grinds. The diarrhea continued all day yesterday and this morning. I've read this could be caused by bleeding in the upper GI. Should I be worried or is this a side effect of the Aloe Vera? How long until I should seek medical help?

Hello Doctor! I am a female aged 27 yrs from India. I have sensitive skin since birth which breaks out into rashes in contact with dust, heat, sweat, pollen, insect bite, etc. I am prone to dust and pollen allergy as well. My current problem area is my neck and the base of neck. It started two weeks back when I went out in the strong summer sun. The area became reddish-maroon, itchy and subsequently started burning. I applied ice, aloe vera and other natural cooling agents thinking its a sunburn. It healed after a few days with dead skin peeling off. However, the same problem has resurfaced two days back though this time I have taken all precaution to cover every inch of my skin before stepping out in the sun. Constant sweating due to humid Indian conditions is making my condition worse and the burns more sore. Please help!! The marks look ugly and hurt and burn every time it comes in contact with even clothes!!

Dear Doctor, I am training to become a nutritionist and so this may seem strange that I have this problem! I am 45 and 5'6 and 9 stone 7oz. I do not have regular bowel movements, say every 3 or 4 days. I eat fruit, veg and drink lots of water take probiotics and aloe vera, etc. Do you think I should have a colonoscopy?

I had some bumps on my back that I thought something bit me. They were white with a black dot in the middle. They itch and hurt to scratch, I have been putting aloe Vera plant on them they have dried up but are still very sensitive and hurt. They are like black scabs now.
