Anything strongly aromatic can be an allergen. Sandalwood not so often, but tea tree oil is one of the worst (more for causing asthma than eczema, and it can be lethal).

I'd agree that diabetes ought to be ruled out, but again WHERE IS THE ECZEMA? The exact location can say a lot about what the cause is.
