Maybe I'm allergic to pine trees. The pines will seem to gather
themselves during a pleasant spring day and then a gentle zephyr will hit the branches and poof!
It is about then that allergies begin to get the best of me . . .
By early July, I can be a wreck and begin a desperate retreat indoors every afternoon. I have found that it is best just to take the generic zyrtec every morning right thru the growing season. I hate to do it but I will be vanquished from the playing field without it!
The Allergy and Asthma Foundation issues a "Worst Cities" list for allergies every spring and fall. Unfortunately, they are making you wait for the spring list until April and just have the fall list on their website. Here is their "Worst Cities" for asthma however: Asthma Capitals (link)
I am not sure about locations as they relate to individuals. I live out of high humidity which can be so difficult for people with asthma but the dryness here takes its toll on my sinuses. When I lived in the fresh, fresh
air of the Pacific coast, the wind and cold seemed to set me up for chronic bronchitis! Of course, smoking cigarettes during those years was probably the worst thing I could do.
