In brief: Yes and no

You can go to the ed for rough skin but you will likely wait a long time and probably not receive the attention that you deserve.
The ed will be focused on treating life threatening problems. They will also likely refer you to a dermatologist. You would be better served scheduling an appointment with a dermatologist and avoiding the inconvenience and expense of the emergency department.
