What's the best product to use on a 3 year old for eczema?

I have tried everything the doctor has giving. I have tried home remedies, over the counter, etc. Nothing is seeming to help him. HELP! Majority of the things I've used he screams and hollers saying it burns and I have to fight with him to let me put it on him again.

Avoiding triggers

I’ve had eczema my whole life going from doctors to dermatology to hospital. The past couple months it has been Very bad and now I seem to find being around my dog (which ain’t hairy) is maybe making it worse? I’ve had my dog for 5 years and My skin has not flared from this but as I said the past couple months I feel like I’ve just became allergic or something. Could this be possible?
