In brief: Moisturize!
Moisturizing often, especially after showering or bathing is key to eczema control.
Accepting the need for topical steroids or calcineurin inhibitors is also key. I would investigate triggers and remove anything in the environment which may be flaring the eczema.

In brief: Four points are...
Take soaking baths with moisturizing soap, pat dry, apply moisturizing agent (vaseline, unscented lotion, aquaphor, etc.
), apply topical medicine (topical steroids, protopic/elidel).
