No: In the U.S., where the tap water is clean, washing hands with tap water is fine... and regular soap is a bonus. In general, nothing else is needed (no Dettol nor other antiseptics). Also, "worm eggs" in newspapers is not a normal worry... unless the newspapers have been used to catch pet poop. If poop is involved, one can go ahead with using regular soap.
