Crank pedal-thread damage

Hi all,

Went out for a ride yesterday and after about 5 minutes my non-driveside pedal had loosened as i rode and has partially stripped the thread of the crank arm. Only about a quarter of the total thread is missing, and the pedal screws back in normally (not at an angle). I am really reluctant to replace the crank arm - its a brand new crankset that is literally 2 rides old. Could I put loctite in the crank arm thread to hold the pedal in place? I know normally you use grease but considering the thread damage I am a bit worried about it reoccurring. Thanks!
