Kaligirl, You ask all the questions that I want to know too.
Hope you don't mind if I tag along behind you here.

The humidifier is a great idea! I live in the desert and my son is allergic to everything here. I get severe migraines every Spring and Fall because of the weeds too. The humidifier does wonders to help. I use one of the inexpensive types you get at a 5 and dime store. Cost about $15.

I figure, COS has got to be better than where we live. Actually, anywhere is probably better for allergies than where we live.

As far as Denver and Asthma goes... yes, we do have the best respiratory medical center in the country (National Jewish)

But whether or not you'll feel better depends on a lot of things.

You should have allergy skin tests done to see what kinds of pollens they might be allergic to. Pine can cause some people problems.

If they're highly allergic to mold, Denver will be good since it's very dry here. On the other hand, dry climates can irritate the respiratory system as well.

It will take you awhile to get used to the high altitude, but there are less particles polluting the air. It all kinda just depends.

Default Much info already here....

A lot of data here already. For some, it gets worse, for some, better, depends on the triggers.

Use Search this Forum tool with keyword asthma and/or dust and/or pollen and/or whatever word is appropriate. Do this in the Denver forum and in the main Colorado forum.

Default Asthma

My dad has asthma and he's fine. The lack of humidity helps. There are some allergens from trees in spring to watch for. The smog really isn't too bad at all.
