Hi Kedi, thank you for the question.
This is a difficult question to answer over the net and furthermore, eczema may be difficult to treat. From your history there may be an association with an allergen. If you have not had blood tests (IGE, and RAST) then my advice would be to have these done and see if your family doctor can pinpoint a specific allergen which hopefully you can avoid. One could have these reactions to topical products that range from face creams to even your shampoo or conditioner. There have also been some breakthroughs in treating both eczema and psoriasis with LED lights known as Photo Dynamic Therapy or PDT (Omnilux) and this may be something you can look into. Another treatment that has shown success in some patients is phototherapy using UV lights. I hope the above options will help you and my suggestion is to discuss them with your dermatologist.
