Who said Eczema: Make sure you have a dermatologist diagnose you. Brown spots on face can be sun damage or melasma to name a few. Dry peeling skin may be contact dermatitis, and not necessarily eczema. Sun damage can cause dry peeling skin. Get a good moisturizing sunscreen and a see a dermatologist.
