Also, the humidity is terrible for people with asthma.

Moved from NJ then overseas to the FL Panhandle (right on the beach, actually).

No allergies in that part of FL whatsoever for me!

Not for everyone. I have asthma and I can breathe better when it's humid.

Almost every day I am suffering in FL. It was bad in Chi burbs, esp. ragweed. Ta-da ! There is ragweed in FL ! Goofy allergist here said I was misinformed. I said look it up. Would I move? I doubt it. I love it here in the sunny state. Guess I'll be on Benadryl forever. My allergies are quite bad.

As a snowbird, I get to jumpstart my allergies in January then go home and do it all over again. In my estimation, my seasonal allergy flares are far worse in FL.

I never had allergies until I moved to Florida in 1994. I wound up in the emergency room with the mother of all asthma attacks. I never had asthma when I lived up north. I still use nasal sprays and Zyrtec every day and inhalers during pollen season. Allergies in Florida are the pits!!!!

Vastly more living things in the air and everywhere else in florida - bugs, mold, humidity, pollen, leaves and mixtures of all it mixed with dust and sand.

I have few allergies but both the wife and I broke out in giant welts all over our bodies in FL last spring. I don't think it would be the place I'd want to live if heavily allergic.

Red tide and other such things are actually dangerous for anyone with respiratory issues - like "shorten your life, put you in the ER" type of dangerous.

It may be that certain locations, due to sea breeze or limited species of vegetation nearby (where the wind carries) have less in allergies.

I'd imagine beachfront in Miami, etc. may be low also due to the amount of development, concrete and sand and water.

My allergies are worse when the humidity is low and it's breezy with stuff blowing around. That's definitely inhaler time for me! The higher humidity doesn't bother me at all.

Im having a different type of allergy flare up this year. Its in my eyes, the right one being worse. It started 3 days ago, and I went to the Eye Doctor today. I'm on 2 different eye drops to deal with the allergy. I'm on Thera Tears for the dry eyes, This allergy has caused my right eye to swell up, turn red, sting and water. I've never had anything like it before. I always thought allergies caused sneezing, runny nose, coughing. I am having none of that this year. Yet that is.

Truthfully Florida seems very rough on me physically. Across the board.
