eczema and b12

I went vegan for six months and developed excema on both my inner elbows, this only cleared up when I took B12 supplements, so I am thinking that most people are lacking in vitamins causing their excma and no creams or steroid will ever help them, and I also believe that the medical industry would prefer to sell these creams and steroids rather than inform the public about their food not being nutritious enough.

Re: eczema and b12

Hi there, I'm so pleased to hear your eczema settled. Lots of studies have been done to see if vitamin supplementation helps eczema and unfortunately, even though a few individuals might be helped (like yourself), on a larger scale, vitamins don't routinely appear to help eczema. There is lots of research going into foods and how we can eat more healthy to improve our skin and how gut health and skin health are linked, so I hope that reassures you.
Best wishes.
