In brief: Sort Of...

Eczema and allergy are related.
Some folks do benefit from allergy type meds for certain types of eczema as well. Skin complaints however can be really difficult to diagnosis without seeing them. If its a real problem be sure to let your doc actually look at it.

In brief: Yes

Eczema is a form of atopic disease which includes allergies and asthma.
Treatment is similar - usually steroids for flareups. I would try Hydrocortisone 1% cream twice daily for a few days. (www.Chrisohmd.Com).
