We did a full elimination diet with dd2 who had the same problem as yours...if I remember correctly, here's the list of foods to remove:
nightshades (tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, peppers)
I would suggest not washing every day, as the drying out will aggravate the eczema...and definitely get rid of the softener.
Um...slippery elm was recommended to give as a supplement. We mixed it with organic apple juice concentrate.
Good luck - it's no fun, but once you find the trigger(s), it is amazing what a difference it makes! FWIW, our dd2 was sensitive to wheat - even just the wheat in soy sauce would make her break out, but by age 3.5 she outgrew it and today at 5 eats everything!
