Yes

it is safe to apply Vaseline to your facial skin. If some gets into your eyes, it will not damage the surface, but it could significantly blur your vision for awhile.

I asked for dry n dark hands n ur doctor advised for using Vaseline petroleum on wet hands just wanted to know can the same procedure b done on face?

No

Head-face
I would not try the vasaline petroleum jelly on your face. It is too thick and may clog your pores and make you break out. For the face, if very dry, I like to suggest trying rubbing in baby oil very thinly while the skin is soaking wet and then towel dry.

Is it okay to apply vaseline (petroleum jelly) on eyelashes ? I heard it makes them grow longer and thicker. If not, is there any other solutions ?

No problem

Eye
Vaseline will not harm the eye or eyelid but it has no effect on eyelash growth. If you want eyelashes to be thicker and longer, use latisse. It is available from your ophthalmologist or dermatologist.

Can I apply vaseline/petroleum jelly on my scalp? I've scratched and irritated my scalp and when I wash it, it burns cus I probably broke some skin.

Bee & Flower

Stringio
soap can be purchased in Chinatown or on line. It is easy on the skin and pleasant smelling. One type is called Sandalwood, but there are several others. Peace and good health. Please see a dermatologist and avoid lotions w/alcohol in them. Vaseline not a good idea; need to avoid infection.

How to cure dry heels? I use all kinds of cream even 100% pure petroleum jelly Vaseline?

Try doing

Extremity-foot
What your doing and then wrapping your foot in Saran wrap, putting on a sock before bed time. You may see a difference. If not try a high concentration urea cream ( over 40percent) works very well with feet. This used to be by rx, now some are not rx but may be easier to find with rx.

For Anal Fissure, can you use Vaseline 100% pure Petroleum Jelly. Any issues. Would it help for Fissure or cut.

Won't hurt

Intestine
Vaseline may help protect an anal Fissure from irritation but will not facilitate healing. The most important factor in healing an anal Fisssure is decreasing size and straining with bowel movements. Daily still softeners and/or fiber supplementation are important. Nifedipine ointment and nitroglycerin ointment may also be helpful. These are prescriptions you can discuss with your doctor.
