Eczema advice

I have tiny patches of eczema in both corners of my nose. It's always been very mild, easily controlled with some OTC hydrocortisone cream, and intermittent. Lately, though, it's flared up big time, is VERY red, sore, scaly and itchy, and the hydrocortisone isn't helping. I've tried some Aquaphor and some of this olive oil based cream that I have, but nothing is helping. Does anyone have any suggestions for something not to expensive I could try (cost is definitely a factor here, I'm fucking broke), or should I see my doctor and try a prescription steroid cream?

P.S. I'm heartened that the google search for "bag over head" resulted in mostly men. The fact that I'm surprised by this is a little distressing.
