Thanks for your concern. I didn't let it get too far in the way of my Christmas spirit, though for a moment I thought I might go to a doctor.
It went through about 4 or 5 layers of skin, but it appears to be healing well for 48 hrs later.
With the aloe, I have a plant, but its leaves aren't very robust and there is very little gel. So I cut about a 2" strip off, split it open, and wrapped the gel side over the wound. Should be easy enough to scrape it out and apply it. Whatever keeps the scarring to a minimum!
Very excited about the deep tissue oil after reading the testimonials! :)
