I've found what worked for us was aquaphore and covering the area with a bandage.

Coconut oil immediately relieves the burn for my daughter.

I just saw mix equal parts honey and cinnamon. I have no idea if it works, but it doesn't hurt to try.

Coconut oil relieves the itching almost instantly it works for dd and I tried it for myself last night and it works. Idk if it helps clear it up but it helps with the itching.

How old is Daughter?  Excema is very often related to diet and cold weather. Lots of kids who have those bright, red precious cheeks really have excema.  And "eggscema" can often be linked to EGGS!!  If she is old enough to be eating eggs, try cutting that our of her diet.  If not, it may be related to cold weather.  If she continues to have issues or if it gets worse, do not wait for your doctor to refer you to an allergist.  You will wait a very long time.  Go on your own and see what they think.
