A friends little girl had shocking excema and tried everything to no avail. She then stumbled on a product called Dermaveen available from chemists and has it cleared up completely.
Hope all goes well
I myself suffer from chronic eczema and have tried just about everything, and at the moment I am undertaking a strict skin and health regime entailing creams, and oral health tablets. My diet has also had to change. My now 3 month old often gets eczema too, particularly in the sweaty areas,such as under his neck, in the crook of the arms and on his face. I found Lucas' PawPaw ointment very good to use. it cleared his eczema within four days. As I am breastfeeding, I have also found that since I have been on this change of lifestyle eating habits and taking these health products this has helped his skin also. The ointment can be bought at most chemists. I hope this is helpful, and hope all goes well also!
I have an 8yr old and 7mnth old twins, 2 out of the three have excema and I find wahing them in sorbelene cream and covering them in that each morning when they get dress helps too.

My 3 year old had eczema from 2 weeks of age due to an extremely stressful birth. He had it over his whole body and I had to make up a brew of chamomile tea (fresh from health shop - not tea bags) and use a chux cloth to dap it on. I worked a treat and dried up all his weepy eczema on his face. He only gets it occasionally now if he gets over tired or over heated.
Aloe Vera gel is also good but get it from a health shop - the ones at the supermarkets are coloured! It takes out the heat so helps with scrathing. The only good thing about eczema is that it doesn't scar so don't panic if she scratches. Not all products work for each person. I tried some expensive creams and that made it worse.
Do you use fabric softner? Don't cause it is no good - instead put white vinegar in the rinse cycle and that will remove any excess powder/liquid that can also cause skin irritations.

My 7.5 month old son suffered badly from ezcema when he was born, and still on occassions gets it now, especially when the days are windy. I was put onto a cream called EGOZITE Baby Cream. You can buy it from the chemists for under $10.00 a tube. It is great. It clears my sons ezcema up within 2 days. I put it on him 3 times a day, with sorbelene cream between then. I would use anything else, as this cream is very gentle. My niece (8 years) and nephew (5 years) also use it now, and it clears their ezcema up to. Hope this helps!!
