Yes: Yes it is good for keeping skin moisturizers and smooth but should not be used on open wounds. Typically recommend this after complete healing of a skin graft or something.

Recommended: because is a great moisturizer for dry skin, and it can be used on a daily basis. If concerned, see a dermatologist for consultation and treatment options.
