Brief Answer:
Eczema affects skin surfaces

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
Usually eczema won't affect the vagina.
Because eczema only affects skin and vagina will be lined with mucosa.
And eczema is not contagious.
You once confirm regarding the diagnosis.
If she is having lesions over vulva, that can be eczema.
If she is having problem with immunosuppressive cream, with your doctor's advice she can go for low dose corticosteroids, antihistamines, emollients etc.
