How do you treat eczema?

Many things: Basically one needs to avoid things that may irritate the skin. Moisturizers with hypo-allergenic creams or ointments will help protect the skin from flare-ups. Topical steroids are used to treat any flare-ups. Those are the basics but every patient needs to be evaluated on his or her own.
