When I had the infamous glue gun debacle (about melted my index finger pad off right before all of my Christmas gigs) I used raw aloe vera directly from the plant. Luckily my son’s teacher had just given him a small starter plant as a gift. I broke off a limb (stalk, petal, frond?) and squeezed the juice directly on the burn. It felt great and I think it sped up the healing process. And about the hand paranoia, yes I’m right up there. I feel super left out during the dads vs. sons basketball team challenge. Everyone says “Why aren’t you out there?” and I have to go into this diatribe about finger-fears.
