In brief: Doubtful.

The studies done on evening primrose oil treatment for eczema have been inconclusive.
In other words, no consistent benefit has been shown, and given that it can cause headache, indigestion, nausea, diarrhea, and pregnancy complications, i wouldn't recommend it. Talk to your doctor about management options that are effective.
