See a dermatologist: A persistent mark like you describe could be many things, including rosacea (a chronic inflammatory condition) to infection (such as a superficial fungal infection) to skin cancer. You should see a dermatologist for a closer inspection and a definitive diagnosis, that will determine what kind of treatment you will need. Good luck!

Yes see your doctor: A chronic cough that goes on for weeks usually has a cause. In most cases, it turns out to be post-nasal drip from allergies or sinusitis, reactive airways like asthma or copd, or gastro-esophageal reflux. In some instances, it can be something more serious. Long-lasting cough requires a thorough evaluation & possibly coordination between many specialists, so get checked out.

Not technically: Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a hereditary inflammatory condition. It is associated with food & airborne allergies but there is no definite cause. Irritants such as fragrance in detergents can worsen itch & increase eczema, so many physicians recommend double rinsing clothes before wearing to wash away all detergents. Therefore, detergents can exacerbate eczema but won't directly cause it.
