    It would be best to visit a Dermatologist and get a proper diagnosis so the correct treatment can help the problem.  A referral from your GP is required.
    Usually eczema is itchy as opposed to other skin problems, however sometimes fungal infections can be itchy as well.
    Changing to hypoallergenic skin products may help to relieve some symptoms.
