I was reading the thread below about weather in Charlotte, and my son has allergies, he takes weekly allergy shots. Any transplants finding their allergies worse or better? I have been so worried about schools and location, I haven't thought of that. I don't like the heat, so that will be my adjustment.

I'm a transplant that didn't have allergies and now I do.

Eight years ago, I moved from NY to South Fl, and for about 6 months I couldn't breath properly, we just landed in NC and I'm having the same problem. The change in humidity causes it.

Not to disagree with you (and I AM sorry you are suffering) but it's not the humidity. It's the tree pollen.

Just wait until your cars are covered in it.

It depends on what kind of allergies you have, where you are coming from, and whether filtered air helps you, as to whether you will do better or worse. I'm from Western NY and have lived in NC-Winston-Salem, Asheville, and now Huntersville, and FL-Ft. Lauderdale and Tampa. The worse problem I've ever had was Asheville but we didn't have filtered air in the summer. I have severe dust allergies which filtered air helps me. I have few outdoor allergies, but I don't imagine the pollen helped the dust allergies having an air conditioner in the window...

From what I've seen and where I've lived, NC gets covered with a nice shade of yellow pollen in the spring...

My son also recieves weekly allergy shots. Since starting them he has no problems down here. Talk to your allergist to see if there is any pollen that will affect him differently or more here, but he should be fine with the shots.

I haven't noticed a difference from Delaware in the week I've been here but it may take more time.

Spring allergy season is just beginning in the Charlotte metro area. I noticed last night that the local news has begun the allergy reports - to let you know what is blooming now and to alert allergy sufferers. You might want to take a look at this link:

As a native, over the years, I have heard from folks moving in from places with fewer oak trees that they were not prepared for the allergy season. My husband truly does not go out in the wind during the spring. Tree pollen is not a good thing for him.
