This isn't exactly a home remedy but it is an alternative. After having eczema on my legs and belly for over 20 years and having no help from doctors other than steroid creams, a friend told me that her eczema had cleared up with acupuncture. I decided to give it a try after a horrible summer with bleeding and uncontrollable itch all over my thighs and calves. I started seeing an acupuncturist here in Toronto 2x a week about 3 weeks ago. As well as the acupuncture treatment, the acupuncturist also gave me 2 liquid tinctures (Chinese remedies) to take 3x a day, 1 to clear toxins from my liver and one for skin. The results were immediate. First the itch stopped and then my skin started clearing. I have also been pretty strict in my diet for the past three months, no alcohol, coffee, dairy, shelled seafood, nuts or sugary sweets. The acupuncturist also has been coaching me on my diet. I don't need steroid creams any more, I just put shea butter on my skin. If you would like more info please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.(I am not selling anything), I am very happy to help.
