Thanks for writing to us.
Firstly it needs to be confirmed if its eczema.
Eczema sometimes might not respond to mild steroid like hydrocortisone. in such cases either a stronger steroid is suggested or oral steroid is given.
I would advise that you meet a dermatologist near by to start an appropriate diagnosis based treatment.
Take care
