You should take Claritine at night daily for 10 days to reduce the itching .
You should apply the Cortaid and Canestan lotion on the area twice a day for 2 weeks.
It would help in reducing the symptoms.

This is not related to the GI Bug. This can come from the yeast / fungal cells that are present on the body and cause inflammation and secondary eczema .
The itching tends to worsen the basic skin inflammation .
