  When aloe is used for application to the skin, it is considered safe as long the juice avoid entering directly onto extensive open wound. The potential to cause an allergic reaction is rare. On the other hand, consumption of aloe by mouth wants attention, because it can cause cramping and diarrhea.
 The women during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and those who have problems such as abdominal pain, ileus, or a history of allergy to garlic, onion and other plants of this family should avoid taking it.
