My daughter had very bad eczema when she was little.  It gets better as she gets older.  she is 4 now.  She still has it but a lot better.  We found out later it was cause or  worsen by food allergy.  You may want to have an allergy test when she is a  little bit old.  Food allergy makes my daughter's eczema a lot worse.  Good luck!
