Default Move to SD to escape allergies

Wonder if anyone that has moved to SD or that region has found living there has helped with allergies. I am especially interested in hearing from people from the Pacific Northwest that have allergies to mold, and like me they become chronic infections that meds eventually don't work. Eventually the doctor tells us that the wet moldy northwest does not agree with us and we would be doing ourselves a favor to live in a warmer dryer climate not necessarily Arizona, no longer a good choice Im told. Would like anyones input.

I found that my allergy situation was far better here in San Diego than anywhere esle that I've lived - the northeast and northern California - however, I 've never lived in the Northwest. Still the situation here isn't perfect. Like you, I would regularly develop infections, but unlike you, my triggers weren't molds.

It won't help your allergic reactions, but nasal surgery to improve your drainage might help prevent the infections.

Thank you, yes surgeries were mentioned, relocating out of here has been mentioned even more, San Diego was mentioned, Phoenix has lost its reputations for allergy sufferers. I have diabetes so I need to make a decision, since chronic infections make managing diabetes very diffcult. I think San Diego with its ocean brezze and warm climates less mold problem than this wet place up here, might be of benefit. Thanks.

I am currently living in Oregon and when I moved from SD I didn't have any alergies that I was aware of until I walked up the side of a mountain here in Oregon. It caught me by surprise.

Hate to say it, but I live in NW Oregon and a lot of people have allergy problems to mold and many other things. Mold allergies are almost impossible to escape out here because it simply is so wet so much. I once heard that the native americans who lived here described the NW Oregon valleys (Portland, Salem, Eugene, Medford) as the "valley of sickness" because of severe alleriges that people experienced. Don't know if that story was true, but I would believe it.

Just a little side question unrelated to location: Years ago, I cut dairy out of my life almost completely and my allergy problems decreased dramatically. Just FYI!

Good luck!!

Thanks for the replies, Yes I have also heard that the Willamette Valley is the Valley of Sickness, it would make sense. My doctor has mentioned it to me, he said he has no shortage of patients with allergies to mold the predominant one and several other allergens here. He recommended San Diego that the ocean breeze and the drier climate would make me less prone to all the infections I get here. I am considering the move, well if I can afford San Diego that is.

My allergies are far better in San Diego as well, but still not 100 percent gone. Of course, I'm from Sacramento, which is king of allergies, so anything is better than Sacramento, allergy-wise. There's a saying there, "If you live here long enough, you WILL find something you're allergic to".

They aren't kidding.

Angry Sacra-hell-hole

I was waiting for someone in the Sacramento airport once during allergy season. I ended up rubbing my eye so much, I developed a blister on the cornea. I could barely get my eyelid to slide over my eyeball!

yeah Sacramento is way up on the list of allergy places. Maybe its due to agriculture in the area, I don't know.
