In your experience, where have been the best and worst places for your allergies?

Clearly, different people do better in different places, but there's still trends to be noticed.

If you've lived in various places in or out of the U.S., it would be especially interesting to hear your experiences.

Thanks!

That's a tough one because it all depends on what specific allergens trigger each person.

My allergies were annoying in Maine. They are horrendous in Wisconsin. I blame all the huge farms.

I never had allergies on the east coast, they started when I moved to Ohio and Wisconsin. Could be an age related thing thou.

If your allergy is to dust/dust mites the best climate is high and dry. They can’t live in high elevation because of the

air pressure and they need at least 50% humidity. I would recommend AZ, CO, NM, NV, UT, and the high desert of

California.

I live just outside of NYC and this year has been one of the worst for me. NYC ranks 48th of the cities with that are the worst for allergy sufferers.

Though I don't technically have allergies, I swore I did when I lived in that oppressive humidity of the gulf coast. The pollen count is extremely high in cities like Mobile and Pensacola. The first few months I lived there, I constantly was wheezing and such and had a difficult time adjusting to the air quality. Took about two months and this was in the fall season.

We are contemplating a move to an area somewhere near Lyndhurst, NJ. Currently we live in Orlando and my daughter has pretty bad asthma. We've been here 3 years and the asthma kicked in when we moved here. Any insight into how she might be near Lyndhurst?
