Hi I am dr.Iqtidar one of the experts on The best soap is oilatum bath additive which we prescribe. It can be applied by cotton buds for cleansing wet skin and washed off. It is added to bath water for soothing and cleaning. 2-3 capfuls are sufficient. There aren't any soaps available for eczema.

It is imperative that you apply an emollient such as E45 or diprobase generously. For flareups steroid creams are used. These measures keep eczema under control.

I hope this answer helps. If you re satisfied with my answer lase leave me a positive rating.
