My Eureka lemon tree, which has always produced large and plentiful fruits, has suddenly started to produce smaller fruit covered with light brown scale. Also, there are not many of them and not much blossoming. Please can you help?

It sounds like you may have an issue with mites or scale bugs. The use of neem oil is very effective for treating these pests and is perfectly safe for plants, people, and even beneficial insects.
