If you live in the somewhere close to the downtown area of Austin, can you avoid getting Cedar Fever? It seems to me that allergies are much less if you have less trees and more concrete? Wrong assumption?

No, the cedar pollen, it's actually mountain juniper, is in the air and the only way to avoid it is to stay indoors and use those air purifiers. Granted, a hike in a cedar infested forest would probably cause a much larger reaction than normal, but I don't think being in a downtown area would necessarily reduce the exposure enough to make a difference.

My husband is highly allergic and he takes a claritin-type antihistamine and uses one of those non-steroidal prescription nosesprays from his family doc. He has also had good luck with a homeopathic remedy, these drops you put on your tongue, that he gets from Sun Harvest. It is possible to live here and not suffer terribly.
