As people with eczema tend to have very sensitive skin, they have to be very careful with what they put on their skin.  For this reason, I am very cautious performing any type of chemical peels on individuals with a history of eczema.  I would recommend you consult a board-certified dermatologist to discuss options for facial rejuvenation in eczema-prone skin.  A dermatologist will know best how to evaluate your eczema, what treatments may work for your skin and how to handle any reactions that may occur after having a treatment.
