Hi. I was unaware that atopic dermatitis has the symptom of sleep disturbance. Is the sleep problem due to the discomfort caused by the other symptoms or is the sleep problem a separate symptom? My 21-year-old has a small amount of eczema and he has trouble sleeping. He has never blamed the eczema for his sleep problems. Could there be a connection? Thank you.
