Atopic dermatitis is a form of eczema in which people have itchy and red skin that resembles a rash.  Some researchers looked into whether or not vitamin D levels are associated.

Ninety five subjects with atopic dermatitis and fifty eight controls had their vitamin D levels checked and scored their symptoms.  They found that the frequency of infection was greater in those with lower levels of vitamin D.

They also found that once supplemented with vitamin D, symptom scores improved significantly.
