Hello Mr.Khan;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Eczema is a sort of dermatitis with oozing or with out oozing with associated fungal or bacterial infection also and it should be treated properly.Eczema can be wet/dry;an atopic /seborrhic dermatitis.There is no perfect medicine and the treatment will be symptomatic.The main goal is to keep the area moisturized and treat the bacterial/fungal infection if any.Also application of steroids help.So for proper and detailed treatment you have to consult a Dermatologist (skin specialist).He will examine and treat you.
