Eczema

Emily has suffered with eczema her whole life due to her many food and environmental allergies. However, this year is the worst I've ever seen it. It actually looks worse in real life than in these pictures.

It usually is confined to the inner joint of her arm and her wrists but it's starting spread all over her arms and her face.

Does anyone have any experience with treating this? I hate to run to the doctor and get a steroid cream. If there is something a bit less drastic that will do the trick, I'd love some ideas! Please share.
