Post photo?: Could you post a photo of the area? That would be somewhat helpful, although with skin conditions we really need to see them in person. Re: eczema dx, the fact that you put HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) on it and it did not work may or may not be important. Best tx for eczema is to keep skin hydrated, moisturized and avoid any irritation to the area.
