I knew someone else who suffered down there. Strangely enough, I had the best health ever experienced in my life when I lived down there. Never had any allergy problems or colds. The specific allergens that affect your body are different for everyone.

Before I moved to Georgia, I had never had any problems with allergies. I started having problems after I moved, probably due to their "pollen season", where pollen covers everything like snow. I moved away from Georgia back to OK, and my allergies came along with me. I still have the runny nose and irritated eyes from time to time.

Chicago is NOT a good place to live for allergies. it already has poor air quality compared to most of the USA and things such as ragweed drive many nuts towards the end of summer/start of fall!

Yep - Atlanta is one of the worst places in the U.S. for certain types. During bad years, as Caramelboo stated earlier, it can literally almost look like a thin dusting of snow on the cars, sometimes only two hours after you've cleaned them. I've heard from people who have relocated here who never had allergies, who wound up in hospitals having to get shots due to it, while others aren't affected.

It really depends on what specific pollens bother you, but Atlanta is for sure one of the hot spots in the U.S. for it in Springtime, and if you're allergic to Ragweed, once again in the fall.

As far as major cities go, I've lived in Nashville and Chicago. Hands down, Nashville was the worst of the two for allergies.
