Moisturize: For eczema, whether allergic or not moisturization is the key. Soak in the bath until wrinkly, then apply a barrier cream to problem areas.
Allergy testing can determine if food is the cause, or if you are Atopic (allergic) in general and prone to eczema.

Skin allergies: Yes. Many persons develop allergic contact dermatitis to chemicals that they come in contact with such as nail polish, hair dye or the metal in jewelry or watches. The list is endless.
