As I am the Diet Expert I can only answer the latter part of your query (please ask Cyber Doc about alternative medications). There is not very much evidence that diet plays a role in eczema, but as this is believed to be an autoimmune disease, taking Salmon oil capsules to boost omega-3 intake, may well help. Omega-3 helps in inflammatory conditions so it is at least worth a try. If your daughter is eating a well balanced diet, then she need not take vitamin and mineral supplements, if NOT then she should take a complete supplement like Centrum or Supradyn Forte for about 2 months. There is also a link between eczema and stress, so it may be beneficial for her to take up some stress-relieving exercise like yoga.
Hope she feels better soon.
