Hi Everyone!

I've been reading this forum for the past year and ever once in awhile the topic of Spring allergies gets brought up. I did some research and have found that Lexington is not up there as one of the worst as people have mentioned. See Top 100 Worst Cities For Spring Allergies - Forbes.com (This was only one of the reports...I found others too that did not include Lexington in the top 25%)

I also found it interesting the the mosre mild the Winter, the worse the Spring allergies.

In any case, if someone has current research showing otherwise, I would love to see it. We are moving to Lexington this summer, and I want to be prepared.

Thanks!

Well, then be prepared for allergies and/or asthma. It's bad. I'm originally from SC and have had allergies and asthma my entire life. It's worse here than in SC (which I thought was bad enough). My first winter in Lexington, I had 4 asthma attacks a day until I got my asthma under control. My 6 year old daughter has now been diagnosed with asthma and allergies. My 4 year old son has allergies and also suffers from asthma when he has a cold. Case in point: One April, my son's eyes swelled shut within 3 minutes. His doctor told us to rush him to the ER where the doc pronounced, "allergies". I said, "He's the only one in the family who doesn't have allergies". He replied, "In April, everyone has allergies in Lexington".
If you get here and discover you're having trouble, I recommend Drs Gerson and Greisner. They take children and adults as patients. Their care has been a blessing to our family.

Yeah, that! Allergies are definitely an issue (both in the spring and the fall). If you know you have them, then you will have to be proactive about treatment. And I agree about the DR rec - Dr Greisner is my allergist and I love their practice! Very "in-the-know" about local allergies and treatments.

I am coming from a place where pollen is high all year long, along with other allergens that are present here but not in KY. I sincerely appreciate all of the leads for good docs. I am trying some holistic approachs too...diet especially. It will be interesting to see what the Spring is like in Lexington, especially after a colder Winter.
