    The purpose of this study is to investigate whether there are differences in children's problem behavior, peer interaction, and school readiness according to the presence of atopic dermatitis symptoms. The subjects of this study were 232 children who had atopic dermatitis symptoms, 1270 children who did not have atopic dermatitis symptoms, and a total of 1502 children among the data for children aged six years from the Children's Panel Study. As the research instruments, the children's problem behavior scale, peer interaction scale, and school readiness scale were used. Research results showed that there were significant differences between groups in emotional responsiveness, anxiety/depression, and physical symptoms, attention problem, and aggressive behavior. The score of problem behavior in a group with atopic dermatitis symptoms was higher than that of the no-symptoms group. On the other hand, there was no difference in peer interaction and school readiness according to the presence of atopic dermatitis symptoms. The results of this study can be used as basic data for coping with and guiding the psychosocial developmental problems of children with symptoms of atopic dermatitis in advance.
