I've come across a few suggestions recently but never had to deal with it myself.
Water therapy (includes eliminating things like softdrinks and caffeine, and using a clean resource for water).
Real Salt can help with water absorbtion, and natural salt includes lots of natural minerals. Salt is great for a lot of things.
Good Fats like from fatty fish, flaxseed, coconut oil, etc. (no: soy, canola, rape)
Eczema Cream -60 day money back guarantee, and toll free number.
Eczema is an inflammation of the skin and may be associated with an allergic reaction, although the cause is often unknown. Childhood eczema is sometimes found behind the knee or in the bend of an elbow and will often clear up by the time the child reaches puberty.
Eczema affects more than 15 million Americans and ten percent of all children have eczema.
The most common of all eczemas is Atopic and has been linked with asthma and hay fever. People of all ages can be affected, but there seems to be a trend for it within some families.
A common symptom is itchiness that can become very uncomfortable. The skin has an overall dryness, can become very red, and highly inflamed. Persistent scratching only worsens the condition and can cause skin infections.
If infected, the skin can weep and have cracks in it. Skin hydration must be maintained. Eczema Cream can be used for both skin hydration and to reduce inflammation.
The Allergic Contact Eczema results when the body has a reaction to a skin contact with a substance that the immune system finds unacceptable. The reaction may be immediate, or can develop over an extended period of time. Some of the typical substances are nickel, perfumes, cloth, rubber, and tin. Some of the offending substances may be found of the commonest of items, such as rings, buckles, the buttons on clothes, watches, and other jewelry.
Irritant Contact Eczema is caused by contact with substance that could be encountered daily, such as soaps, certain chemicals, and detergents. Hairdressers and beauticians often find themselves with rashes and inflamed skin. As with atopic eczema, keeping the skin moist can help in preventing an outbreak. Herbal products, unlike remedies containing drugs, can be used often during the day without any adverse side affects.
Infantile Seborrhoeic Eczema can be very common for children under 1 year of age. The reason for this condition, also called cradle cap is not fully understood. While it is not considered to be serious and causes the baby no unwell feelings, it can be treated with herbal products to help clear the condition. It usually lasts only a few months.
Adult Seborrhoeic Eczema can be more serious than the infant version. It can be found in the scalp and can spread to the face, ears, neck, and chest. The skin becomes inflamed, red, and can flake. Using a product, like Eczema Cream, that can hydrate the skin while also protecting again infections should offer quick relief for this eczema.
Varicose Eczema is a condition found in the lower leg. People in their middle to late years are found most likely to encounter this eczema. Poor circulation is suspected. The ankles are most often affected and if the skin is left untreated, ulcers can develop. Typical treatment is an emollient, especially one that can improved the general health of the skin.
Discoid Eczema most often is an adult condition. It appears as a small, coin shaped redness of the skin. Most often it is found on the trunk or lower legs. These can erupt or weep. Emollients are a usual treatment, but care should be taken that the skin does not become infected. (treatment tips)

I acheived a 100% cure from eczema by using the wellness shower filtration system, and when I mean 100% I do mean 100%. I can even eat what I want and get as stressed as I want without any skin problems. I held off posting this message on here for a while because I recently had a problem with the eczema returning and I was in doubt as to how long these filters actually lasted. However, I contacted Wellness, and it turned out I was not backwashing the filter (which cleans it) enough. I did a week of intense backwashing and the eczema dissapeared again.
I must however point out that the filter works for a lot of people but not everyone. I recommended it to someone who apparantly gained no benefit from it. But for me, the filter has been a godsend and the wellness shower filter was without a doubt the best £160.00 I have ever spent in my life. I am not sure who is selling the wellness filters in the UK at the moment, but contact www.wellnessfilter.com and they will be able to tell you.
