The malt and barley in beer is bad for it! so if you drink beer don't and sunlight helps.

Have you tried phototherapy? Sunlight helps alot and I know there a light a doctor can use that is safer than the UV rays

I cannot reccomend cures, but something that soothes is oatmeal - fill a sock and use it in the bath and buy aveeno as a general moisturiser.
Otherwise I can only suggest what I do with the boy's eczema and that is avoid all soaps, and if one is used avoid changing it. ditch the fabric softener too btw
Otherwise could it be your hormines, as mine is flaring now, and I know it is because I am not pregnant, breast feeding or on the pill....
Oh and avoid all stress as that will kick it off as I am sure you well know
Is there anything else going on in your life that could be sparking this off?
Hope it improves soon
