    Good evening madam and compliments of the season. Are you very sure what you see is eczema? If yes is it associated with a particular method of cooking like stove or gas or wood? When you don't cook say you take a break does the eczema develop too? It's possible your body is over reactive to an irritant which I can't say us smoke or flame but in this case you have to avoid too much closeness to the heat while cooking. The best way to manage it is to avoid the cause. You can use hydrocortisone 1% for the itching. Please see a doctor for proper diagnoses and possibly antibiotics. Cheers.
