If eczema is mild, moisturizers like petroleum jelly or a fragrance-free dye-free cream 2-3 times a day may help. Over the counter cortisone creams may help as well, however, you have to make sure it is not something like a fungal infection that can look very similar to eczema. ...Read more

Not antifungal: Mupirocin, keflex and septra (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) aren't antifungals, those are antibiotics, topical and systemic.

Circular rash: May be fungal like ringworm. You can try over the counter anti-fungal medications. or may be eczema due to dry skin or food /environmental allergies or granuloma annulare which needs steroids, sometimes you can first layer the antifungal and then on top the steroid cream or get a cream that contains both by prescription f/u /w/doc
