    A chemical in permanent hair dye called paraphenylenediamine (PPD) can sometimes set-off skin reactions like eczema.

    It may not be related to your eczema break-out; 14 months seems like a long time for a triggered reaction.  However, it is possible.

    Certain types of eczema can be irritated by chemicals, like dyshidrotic eczema.

    Adult onset eczema can be caused by outside factors such as medication.  You should see a dermatologist.
