In brief: Please see below.
Eczema is in the same family of conditions as allergies and asthma.
It can't be cured but usually can be controlled. It is best managed by using a sensitive skin cleanser, avoiding bathing in very hot water, and using a sensitive skin lotion at least 3 times daily, even when the rash isn't there. If doing this plus Hydrocortisone 1% ointment twice daily isn't enough, please see the doctor.

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.
