Alkaline skin burns are treated for a long time using water as a diluting and neutralizing agent. This is because it is found that acid wash leads to acid-base neutralizing exothermic reactions which leads to secondary tissue damage. Literatures reveal that Aloe vera exhibits a mild acidic property which will be useful in treatment of alkaline burn. The illustrious biological activities of Aloe vera embrace promotion of wound healing, antifungal activity, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, immunomodulatory properties and enhance the dermal absorption and skin permeation. The aim of this research is to study the use of aloe vera gel in treatment of burns, due to alkaline reagents in laboratories or industrial accidents. Time taken for healing wound occurred due to alkali burn has been improved.
