In brief: Cortisone cream

Eczema is a dry skin condition so moisturizers can help.
Use brands made for sensitive skin without fragrance (ie: cetaphil, cerave, aveeno, aquanil). Try topical otc cortisone cream and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) syrup for the itching and inflammation. If not enough then you'll need to see a dermatologist for prescription strength topical steroid and Atarax (hydroxyzine), an antihistamine.
