Nikbic, I've the opposite problem; my skin is really dry and sorry to say that my eczema really flared up big time after my BFP (not to mention my cold sores - ugh!). I found that my GP was the only one who was really able to tell me what I could and couldn't use. I tried the pharmacy but the first time, I got a pharmacy assistant who just didn't know and even with the pharmacist, they were happier if I was able to say that my GP had confirmed something was ok to use. So, I'm afraid if it were me, I'd ask my GP - for medicated creams anyway. I'd be really surprised if something like clean and clear wash was a problem but you just don't know!
