looking for eczema help

My daughter has eczema. 
It seems to get worse in the summer. Sweating causing more itching. Plus, her allergies are worse in the summer. We have tried a variety of lotions. Aquaphor, Eucerin and Aveeno to name a few. Currently we are trying CeraVe. It seems to be helping a bit.

We have also tried some oils including olive oil and coconut oil. She doesn't like the way oils feel. I think we will try avocado oil though. I have heard good things.

Prescription steroids work, but we can't use them all the time. Over the counter hydro cortisone doesn't help much.

Salt water compresses seem to help a bit.

If you have a good eczema remedy, please share it!

Many thanks.
