Since the latest update the background eraser tool is bugged, after clicking just once the function doesn't stops and keeps erasing things until you hit ESC. My Photoshop version: 2015.0529.r.88x64 (OSX 10.11.4)

Maybe you need to trash your Prefs? I have no problem whatsoever with the Background Eraser, no matter what I set it to. But I'm on Yosemite, not El Capitan, because there seem to have been a lot of problems associated with El Capitan. However, sometimes with updates Preferences do need to be deleted and a fresh set created.

 If that doesn't do the trick, maybe giving us the specific settings you're using will help.

You also need to install the updates for Photoshop CC 2015.  You should be on 2015.1.2.
