In brief: Yes

Frequent lubrication and once or twice daily topical steroid such as Fluocinonide are standard.
Frequent exposure to soaps, solvents, foods, hair &etc aggravate hand eczema. Warm gloves in winter are a must. Sometimes a more potent steroid cream is needed. Prednisone @ 20 mg 3 times a week m-w-f for short periods will help if topicals fail.
