Hello and hope you are doing well.

Medications can occur as triggers for episodes of eczema. Note if the rash was initiated with therapy for hypertension. And treatment is with cortisone based creams, which need to be very potent and of increased strength to heal the rash.  Always wear gloves for  washing and while going outside, as cold increases drying. Don't wash your hands and feet anymore than necessary and use very mild soaps. Apply constantly plenty of good moisturizing creams and alternate with steroid creams. Use a humidifier in the rooms to avoid dryness.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
