In brief: No cure yet
Eczema is considered a chronic skin condition which is not curable, but treatable.
It tends to get worse during dry/colder weath and better with warmer and more humid temperature. Keep skin moist, avoid excessive cleansing/scrubbing/hot bath/showers etc...Generous use of skin lotion helps. At times, topical meds/steroids, or oral medications may be needed. Consult your doc. Good luck.

In brief: Protect
Avoid things that make you break out, soaps & wetness.
Wash your hands only when necessary. Wear gloves when needed. Wear clothes made of cotton. Bathe only with a small amount of mild unscented soap, such as dove. Keep the water temperature cool or warm, not hot. Use the medicine your doctor gave you. Use a plain moisturizer daily. Avoid scratching or rubbing the itchy area. Manage stress.

In brief: Moisturizer
You are not likely to ever "get rid" of eczema.
However, daiy and intensive moisturizing may help to keep it at bay. If this doesn't work. See your doctor for more treatment options.
