eyes

could you tell me if lack of sleep can cause swelling of eyelids, redness of eyes and itching. This is for someone who works 4 nights a week and gets roughly 5 hours of rest for those days and has done so for the past 5 years.

Hallo Joan
Too little sleep can cause swollen eyes, dark circles under the eyes and redness but won't cause itching - this makes me think that there may be an underlying allergy too
