What kind of cream are you using?My son has exzema and if you use too much of the prescription for too long his skin will discolor a little.(Only able to use the cream during really bad outbreaks of itching)

Her skin was cracking and bleeding, Since we use Crisco as a maintaining moisturizer. Its worked miracles. But her skin is still spotty :/

My niece has eczema and she uses mometasone furoate cream. It works really well. It's never caused discoloration. I would ask your pediatrician about prescribing you some.

For the discoloration I was taught to use tone soap it will help even her color and add baby oil to her bath to help with eczema.
