Is Johnson's baby soap okay for 18 years old male ?

Hello, Actually I tried different body soaps and many bodywashes. But all resulted in dry skin , which causes irritation and feels very uncomfortable. From last week, I have been using Johnson s baby soap and it left my skin very soft, glowing and it feels very good. Now, my question is whether is it okay to use johnson s baby soap, which is meant for babies. I am 18 years old male. Please reply.

Hello, I had 2 small patches of dry skin, one on each palm, which gradually grew to encompass most of the area of the palm. Whilst the skin on forms a white border which is slightly peeling in apprearnce, the skin in the centre of the palm has grown in quite tight and ever so slightly leathery. I was thinking this could possibly be a form of eczema, but your judgement would be greatly appteciated. Thank-you very much for your help.

I am having trouble with my feet and hands. extremely dry skin - eczema-like on my hand, and skin is cracking leaving deep knife-like splits in heels, ball of foot, and fingers. My entire right foot is swollen and it is extremely painful to put any weight on it at all. I am afraid the foot is infected. Should I go to emergency clinic?
