eczema - mites

I just went to my dermatologist and was diagnosed with eczema. I have it on my left foot pretty bad, on my elbows and inner arm, a little on the back, back of knee. I'm so aggravated with this because it looks horrible and itches so bad. I was prescribed Triamcinolone acetonide cream 0.1%. I just started it this past Friday. I also believe that I am allergic to mites because I will wake up with these red spots and burning feel on my legs. And it's just the lower part of my legs and ankles. I have a cat, does that make it any worse with her fur and all? She has a little bit of dander. I'm just fed up. I look horrible. My legs look horrible as well. If it's mites...how do you deal. I change my sheets everyweek, sometimes twice a week. And I always make my bed, so that my cat doesn't lay on the sheets. What else can I do without having to spend a ton of money. Vacuum, dust, I'm going to be so anal now because it's worse than it's ever been.
