We've been contemplating a move to the Clearwater area and were wondering if anyone with children (or anyone for that matter) who have seasonal allergies (tree, pollen, grass, mold, etc.) moved down there from the Midwest and if their allergies got better, worse, or stayed the same. Thanks!

I thought you started a thread that got a lot of responses on this last month?

At any rate, I can remember reading many comments on here where people arrived and their allergies almost seemed to have disappeared. However, I have read a couple where they felt the year round blooming presents a lot of issues for them.

Mine are far less in intensity, but last longer. Just a few sneezes a day for a few months, but much better than the hell I used to go through. It really depends on what one is allergic to.

My allergies here are the same as when we lived in other tropical or sub-tropical climates..... have been taking daily allergy pills since our full-time arrival in April. Full-time blooming of something, just about all the time down here (we love that). I spend 90% of the day outdoors, even now, either on screened porch (with ceiling fans) or working in garden (early in day) or walking to beach (anytime).

When I lived in DC-Metro my allergies were more seasonal; a month in the spring and another month in the fall.

I think I was focusing on the move itself more than the question of the allergies. I'll have to look. Sorry for the redundancy if so….

No worries! I was just making sure you remembered that thread and, in case you didn't visit back to it, I remember a lot of comments on the allergy situation. Good luck!

My allergies have pretty much been nonexistent since i moved here from Ohio a few months ago. Spring was always the worst for me up there, i would be miserable for almost a month, and then Fall was bad also. But here, i had no problem in the spring despite there being a noticeable amount of pollen flying in the air, nor do i have any so far in the summer, however others can be sensitive to other things in this area so it all depends.
