Aloe I a natural moisturizer that is also used to cool the skin that has heated up from inflammation caused by an irritation of some kind but I would ask you doctor first before so there is not chance of setting off a bad reaction.
If it burns to the touch there might be something quite wrong, if your Doctor can`t do anything then... they haven`t done their job right. Try a different Doctor or maybe a Dermatologist.
Itchy dry skin that burns to the touch could be an indicatation for many dermatitis problems. It could be an allergy (have you tried any lotions or body cream, tried new food, been too close to pets, hay fever or new medication? etc.). It could also be a reaction to something mildly toxic (touched any poison ivy, or harsh chemicals?). Or maybe its just extremely dry skin, have you been taking very hot showers and not moisturising after?
As long as you know you`re not allergic, in the mean time you can try numerous different body oils that are very hydrating (not essential oils) Oils such as rosehip oil, argon oil, olive oil, almond oil, grape seed oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil. They are non-comedogenic. Also try Honey, its known to be one of natures magic healers, also same with rose water, but rose water is very light.
Oh yer and as mentioned earlier by someone else, aloe is very very good, but I would suggest trying to find and break off a stem from the actual aloe plant because aloe gel and other aloe creams and moisturiser might agravate it.

You may well be experiencing eczema, a condition where the skin dries and cracks, often causing a burning sensation when it is really sore. Honestly there is not much you can do, magickally or otherwise bar applying a moisturiser like E45 a minimum of 6 times a day.
That is only if it is eczema but it sounds very likely, if you go back to your doctor, you could ask if the symptoms sound like eczema and see if he can prescribe you something accordingly.

i agree with H2OfanRikki [boy it feels like i say that a lot lol] you might have a form of eczema. ask your doctor about it or to be sent to see a dermatologist. [i have mild eczema at times because i wash my hands a lot at work and use paper towels which dries them out, especially in winter] try to keep some good moisturiser handy. [my friend also has eczema and certain foods can make it worse, you might consider an allergy test as well]
now although there's no spell to fix whatever the issue may be, you can look into herbal/home-made moisturisers and other things to help your skin and you could infuse it with energy. it wouldn't fix the problem, but it could speed healing. [again, speak with a doctor before drenching yourself in random lotions and home-made remedies]
Unfortunately, I got a second degree burn on my right forearm friday from work, when hot oil splashed up on my arm. Do you know of any herbs or ointments besides aloe and vitamin E that could help with, if nothing more, the scarring that will be apparent? The wound is aptly dressed and taken care of by now, but any other input with helping it heal besides the scarring would be nice.
