: Does anyone have any first hand experience with allergy problems ( or lack of) for the Kingman AZ area. I just returned after spending 5 days over there and my hay fever gave me a lot of trouble which kind of surprised me as I thought the desert was a good place for those with allergy problems. I was considering moving over from CA as I like the area, but not if I feel like I have the last few days. By the way it was extremely dry so maybe this was part of the problem. Thanks for any info.
First I have a question for you.have you ever been tested to actually find out what your allergic to?reason being is because I have allergic reactions to certain odors,like in hand cleaner.Every time i smell it i have an allergic reaction that makes me feel like I have a head cold.If you dont know what you're allergic too, you cant make an effective decision as to what to do about the allergy.I have also heard that kingman is a very good area to live to combat allergies.But if your allergic to something that a dry climate has no effect on ,it does no good to move there.I myself have chronic urticaria(really bad itchy hives)they last all year around.
My suggestion is to go to an allergist in your area. See what it is your allergic to.Then decide if Kingman is the right place.Because if its dust or dust mites,it might not matter where you live.You'll still have trouble.I have also read that Arizona has alot of ragweed.I cant say i know that to be true. But if it is thats where you might be getting your hay fever.
Any way,Good luck!!
