I've done a lot or looking on the internet for this
kind of info. It really depends on what you are
allergic to and how severe your allergy is to
each allergin. The reason many people get
relief near the beach is because of inland breezes which blow the pollens away. But if you
have an allergy to mold, it is not so favorable. If
you have an allergy to mold, drier places, like
Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico are good -BUT
the area has been invaded with new allergens
- I know it has a longer grass season. Also
there are certain places where there is much
less ragweed (southern California - Alaska -
Hawaii) but they have other allergens like
mold and grass. Also you can always develope
allergies in a new locale. If you would like to
find a place good for you, it would be wise to
contact local allergists, as well as keep track
of allergens on the weather channel website.
And if mold is your problem - you would want
to keep track of humidity and rainfall levels
I hope I was helpful. I wish you the best.
: I'm just wondering if anyone knows of specific geographical regions which are easier on the allergies. I've heard that hot, dry regions like New Mexico are helpful...those and coastal regions. Is this true? It seems like no matter where I live, I have really bad sinusitus. I'd love some informed advice on the matter (not interested in hearing about new medications, though).
