Eczema and hormones?

Eczema and hormones?

I started with eczema when I hit puberty. It's always worse when I'm on my period. The strange thing though, while I was pregnant and during expressing breast milk, my skin was completely clear! Wasn't even dry!
I was wondering if anyone else has had any links between hormones and skin condition?
