In brief: Please see below.
It could be eczema or a contact dermatitis.
Use a hypoallergenic skin cleanser, avoiding bathing in very hot water, and use a hypoallergenic skin lotion at least 3 times daily, even if there's no rash. Add Hydrocortisone 1% ointment (otc) and an oral antihistamine like zyrtec (cetirizine) if needed. If doing this doesn't help enough, please see the doctor.

Since the problem seems chronic consulting an allergist or dermatologist may be helpful.
