Vitamin A, maybe vitamin D. But you should see a doctor, not following medical advise on internet.

The Vitamin A deficiency is the most common cause of eczema.

Although other vitamin deficiencies cause eczema too such as Vitamin D.

Not getting enough vitamin A may be to blame for the development of eczema and other skin problems.

Eczema is a condition that causes dry, itchy and inflamed skin. Several clinical studies have shown alitretinoin, a prescription medication with vitamin A activity, to be effective in treating eczema.

Lemon water does not help eczema and in fact lemon water could actually make the eczema worse due to allergic reactions from the lemon water or other citrus fruits or citrus fruit drinks.

Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is caused by a combination of immune system activation, genetics, environmental triggers and stress.

Your immune system.

If you have eczema, your immune system overreacts to small irritants or allergens.

This overreaction can inflame your skin.

Oranges, lemons, grapefruit, and other fruits that fall under the category of citrus fruits are known to be common sources that cause allergic reactions.

The chemicals found in citrus fruits may increase the symptoms of eczema, so it is best to avoid them if suffering from eczema.

Some tips to get rid of and help eczema include.

    Moisturize your skin at least twice a day.
    Apply an anti-itch cream to the affected area.
    Take an oral allergy or anti-itch medication.
    Don't scratch.
    Apply bandages.
    Take a warm bath.
    Choose mild soaps without dyes or perfumes.
