Vitamin D May Help Improve Eczema

Eczema is a condition that causes inflamed, itchy, cracked, and rough skin. A recent study has found that supplementation with vitamin D may help improve severe eczema.

Participants in the study included 92 children with an average age of 10.5. All had been diagnosed with severe eczema. They received 1600 IU of vitamin D3 or a placebo daily for 3 months. Eczema severity was evaluated every 4 weeks using the Eczema Area and Severity Index (EASI) score.

At the end of the study period, 56.44% of the participants in the vitamin D group saw improvements in their EASI score compared to 42.09% in the placebo group. In addition, 38.6% of the participants in the vitamin D group saw a 75% improvement in their EASI score compared to 7.1% in the placebo group.

The study was conducted by researchers from Mansoura University. It was published online ahead of print on November 3, 2020 in the journal Pharmacology Research & Perspectives.
