Why does my eczema behave so strange

Okay, I wondered if I could get a bit of help on this.
Everyone knows what normal eczema rashes look like, but for some reason I don't get rashes (yay :D) but instead I just get red patches (nuu D;), I get dry flaked skin a lot as well but greasy ointment sorts that out in seconds. I've stopped eating chocolate and that seems to have helped but I can't tell at the moment as I'm on hydro cortisone for the next 2 days as the red patches hurt and wouldn't go down. But often my skin can flare up with red patches just from touching them, for instance when I put ointment on my neck, it'll usually turn red for a few minutes after putting it on (but generally no itch), but one thing I've never understood is when I begin to itch and flare up somewhere, if I (ensuring my hands are clean) just apply water to my hands and rub the itchy area for a few seconds then dry it off, the itching goes away instantly and the red patch goes away, but obviously that's no use when I'm outside.
Last thing, I currently put hydrocortisone on one night a week, but I'm worried about skin thinning
