eczema treatments and dry winter skin??

this is a 2-parter... my little girl has eczema and I'd like to know some tried and true tips and tricks to make life less itchy. It's mainly behind her knees, crease of elbow and a couple misc. patches on her legs, perhaps some on cheeks. Soap, lotion? I use baby soap all over as she has little hair. Coconut oil or gold bond lotion. my doc Rx'd some steroid cream that I'll use on the "flares" but want to do what I can to help. Does food play into this?
The dry winter skin is me- especially my hands and some dry face, which I haven't ever had before. again, any tips? I don't like having aligator hands!
thanks!
