In brief: Yes

A recently published study showed correlation between low blood levels of vitamin d with the severity of eczema in children.

In brief: No

Vitamin d can help psoriasis.
There is no direct link between eczema and and vitamin d, but topical vitamin d may help eczema in sensitive areas with thin skin.
