I am a newbie to this Swami, and I found out that Aloe Vera is an Avoid for me, not even a black dot next to it. For years, I have been growing Aloe Vera in my backyard garden and putting it in my green juice smoothies and putting it on my skin for every little skin cut, burn, or rash! Yikes! I know I can't consume it anymore, but do I need to Avoid putting it on my skin as well? What does Dr. D say about that?

Generally. However if you take a look at the "Do you get a reaction to Tea Tree Oil" thread, there are certain types of people weighing in on topical reactions.
Usually the more delicate Nonnies or AB's. If the aloe is only listed as your personal metabolic inhibitor, it may not react with your skin. if you're still in doubt, you could always switch to prickly pear/nopalito goo if you're allowed to do so. Fresh clean chopped cactus is usually sold in bags in the refrigerated vegetable section, here. The goo can be rendered out. The Mexicans revere it for diabetes, and even eat it with steak! It would be easier to get nopalitos rather than try to switch to okra mucilage for soothing the skin. You would get seeds all over you!!

As a general rule, you can use "avoids" on the skin. However, there are exceptions. If something  causes skin irritation, stop using it. I can even get systemic reactions from touching wheat, but that's not common.
