is this eczema?

Nicosia, Cyprus

#1 Oct 16, 2012
Some months ago, I noticed a couple of small areas that were red. I didn't pay attention until a month ago, when I had a better look at my skin and I had red patches on the skin of my feet, raised too, I also had inflamation around the waistline. I went to a dermatologist and gave my two corticosteroid creams and corticosteroid pills to apply and take for five days. He said, it was an allergy and he didn't say anything more. After that, the patches subsided. But still I keep getting more red markings on my feet and got a small one under my nose too. I also keep keeping a bit of inflamed skin on my upper arms, but it resolves on its own soon. I plan to see the dermotologist again.
Is what I describe eczema?
