I've had eczema for about 10 years. The worst being the past year since I had head to toe weeping eczema. What I've found that has worked better than any topical ointments or creams is eating a large amount of natural peanut butter (just peanuts and salt). I eat peanut butter sandwiches for most snacks and meals and have noticed that my eczema has calmed down to the point of nearly going away. I eat between 4-8 tablespoons of peanut butter on high fiber bread a day. I started it to see if the monounsaturated fats would help me skin. They certainly did. You might be able to include olive oil in your diet instead if you are allergic to peanuts. It has made such a difference that the only thing I apply topically is a thin layer of petroleum jelly on the eczema patches that are still there.
