Hello and hope you are doing well.

Its difficult to tell what exactly is the trigger for allergic reactions. If the eczema symptoms started on initiation of antihypertensive therapy then they could be the allergic triggers. Sometimes sweat, changes in temperature and psychological stress are known to trigger these episodes. So, the best way to prevent attacks is to identify those substances which you are allergic to and avoid them. Allergy testing would be worth looking into. And treatment is with cortisone based creams, which need to be very potent and of increased strength to heal the lesions.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
