Has anyone here found that relocation to a coastal area alleviated allergy symptoms --or did the opposite occur so the beach environment actually created symptoms? What are some U.S. coasts with hardly any vegetation near its shores? Please share any experiences of this.

I used to get terrible allergies growing up in an inland suburb of the SF Bay Area. They pretty much went away when I lived in San Diego and I was always within 5 miles of the ocean. When I moved back to the same area in 2010 they slowly got worse and worse every year and now they're much back like they were before. Yes so moving near the coast definitely helped my allergies.

When my sister moved from California to Oklahoma, her son's doctor told them that his allergies would be greatly reduced for a while in the new location. That it takes 3-5 years to become sensitized to the different pollen, etc., of another place, but that eventually his allergies would be back. (It's only been 2 years for them, but so far, so good). So it may be that if you move anywhere temporarily you could get some relief, not just necessarily at the beach.

I lived in San Diego for 9 years and my allergies never returned while I was there FWIW.

Completely depends upon the individual. Friend of mine moved from the dry weather of New Mexico to an Oregon Beach town. There she developed allergies so bad she had to move inland. She was fine in Portland. I know who those who have allergies living inland feel who better at the beach. So you just can't predict what will trigger allergies.
