What are good aloe vera ointments/gels for cuts/wounds?
I am allergic to triple anitbiotic ointments (off-brand & Neosporin). My dad suggested that I use aloe vera. Any other good aloe vera or any other topical ointments? **Please don’t suggest prescription ointments. I just need a nice over-the-counter one.
Thanks!

clean it with peroxide… i’d put pure aloe (check the suntan lotion aisle) on it for a while to keep it clean. Once the wound closes… i’d put Vitamin E on it to prevent scaring. You can get that at a drug store in the vitamin aisle, they are sold in gel caps… poke it with a safety pin and spread the oil over your cut… it will reduce the scaring.
