My father cut between thumb and index a nice 4 inch cut, maybe 1 inch deep. All he put on it was fresh aloe vera every day; morning and night-tied with scarf. Minimal scar, no infection, no sutures. He had no insurance, so didn't visit ER,as an RN- I'm well aware of the risk of infection, for so deep a cut; he continued his work in the construction field, and yet it healed perfectly. I believe his faith(in the aloe vera plant) was a strong catalyst to his recovery. Happened when I was a child 12 but I remember clearly. I use it for myself, and recommend to patients I come across. Do not disregard medical attention for any severe situation ( like my fathers )always seek medical help.
