Needs evaluation: The child needs to be evaluated by a pediatrician and possibly a dermatologist. Do not self-treat.

A dermatologist: input is needed, could be eczema as you mentioned, which can be infected, meanwhile, keep the area clean, and moisturized if dry, cut her finger nails short, till you see her doctor / dermatologist, best wishes
