Vitamins A and D? Seems impossible to have them balanced?

I'm REALLY confused about Vitamin A and D. I have keratosis pillars and Acne, which I have been able to control being gluten, dairy, and 80% paleo, and with the help of turmeric, zinc, taking Vitamins, and increasing stomach acid (probiotics and turmeric). HOWEVER! If I start taking a little more Vitamin D???my bumps come back, so then I up my vitamin A and I just can never get the balance!

I had stopped taking Cod Liver oil cause these articles said it was bad! I mean naturally animals seem to have more Vitamin A than D in their livers..maybe this means something. But I mean if we store these precious vitamins, then our body should use them as it decides to, until it just can't store them anymore???which would result in toxicity and other issues.

I feel like if one is lacking in a Vitamin, the body functions without it the best it can???Such as being lacking in Vitamin D, would cause the odd to be tired and such, and the symptoms of Vitamin A defish won't show, but then once the body starts getting what it needs to function, perhaps it then it does what it can to be it's best. So getting more Vitamin D, would use up Vitamin A and then show symptoms of low Vitamin A that weren't present before?

I just don't know what to eat or take anymore, cause people say that beta carotene doesn't even convert correctly and I take beta carotene but obviously a lot of it comes out in mah poo

Who says vitamin D level stay constant over the course of a year? Seasonal variation is going to happen.

I'm not fortunate enough to live in a warm climate, and can't produce Vitamin D from the sun, except for a few months a year? What am I supposed to do…naturally synthasizing isn't an option.

What is a person supposed to in seasons other than summer, which is the only time you can synthesize vit. D from sunshine yourself, assuming you spend 7–20 min. in the sun (depending on your skin pigmentation and ability to make vit. D), exposing your arms and legs, between 10:00 and 14:00 every day?

Problem is you're trying to consume your vitamin D when the natural thing is to synthesize it yourself.
