Welcome to ehealthforum

Eczema is characterized by itchiness and is a long term condition so it takes time for the scars to improve.
1)Aloe vera is an effective treatment for eczema scars.Apply it topically twice a day.
2)Take capsules containing Vitamin A,C and E once a day for few months.
3)Massage the scars with olive oil and have a bath after half an hour.
4)Creams containing Glycolic acid are quite effective in reducing scars.
If the scars are very much visible then you can consider visiting a Dermatologist.many new techniques as Chemical peels and Micredermabrasion are also helpful in reducing these scars.

Take Care!
