Does anyone know the best way to treat burns from mango sap? I picked some mangoes from our tree yesterday and got some sap on my arm. I washed my arm afterwards but woke up this morning with a few slightly raised, purple burns on my arm. I haven't put anything on them because I didn't want to risk making them worse. They're slightly itchy & sore but I've managed to stop myself from scratching them so far. I've never had this happen before (I think pregnancy is making my skin extra sensitive), so any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Do you know anyone with an aloe vera plant? They're great. You just pull of a leaf and kind of split it open and wipe the goo on your arm.
If it's really awful you can put the leaf in the fridge until it's cold then break it open and put it on.
