In brief: Severe Eczema
Questions: how old is your daughter? How long has she had the eczema? How can you help her of she doesn't live with you? Depending on her age, she should be seeing a pediatrician if she's young, or a dermatologist if she's an adult.
There is no magic in treating eczema. First of all, no soap. She should only use cleansers like cetaphil or aveeno (oatmeal) or eucerin, wash clothing in all-free & clear.

In brief: Allergies, skin care
Eczema is often caused or worsened by allergies, usually food abut also airborne.
Avoidance helps clear lesions. In many case however, allergies are not identified. All eczema patients benefit from intensive skin care, using moistuizing agents, avoiding irritants and ensure control of itching. Eczema is a chronic condition and your doctor would provide with guidance.
