In brief: No cure/management

Eczema is a chronic condition where a genetic tendency toward unusual sensitivity to many things results in the condition.
About a 3rd have co-existing food sensitivities that aggravate the problem & exclusion from the diet may help some. For most improvement comes with developing a daily skin routine with the guidance of your doc or dermatologist. Your doc should select the meds.

Eczema among babies are due to dry skin so you have to lubricate or mosturize the skin with lotion.
Extreme cases use Hydrocortisone 1 percent to relieve itching.
