I did not get any reply from you. One possibility can be due to the dryness of the skin and eczema.Eczema is due to the immune reaction against the underlying skin layer. Both can conditions can be treated with:1. Intense moisturizer like Ammonium lactate 12% lotion twice dailyand2. Steroid ointment like hydrocortisone to reduce the inflammation in the skin.
