I live in Coeur D’Alene, ID and my allergies have gone crazy. I’m sick 6-7 months of the year. I lived 25 miles north of here for 6 yrs and only had one flare up. The grass and trees they have added with the new houses make it impossible for me to live here. If you buy in the forest you’ll be fine. – submitted by Lorene, Idaho
I was just asking my dad, who lives in Montana now, if he has had allergies. His wife said he had them real bad when they lived in Idaho. Hope this helps. — Jay, for his dad in Montana
I have two experience with two different climates. One being positive and the other negative. Currently, I live in Pensacola Florida (I love the area) but, I have severe allergies and asthma and I am sick atleast 6 months out of the year!! (no exaggeration)I am extremely allergic to mold, trees, grasses, weeds ect. and Florida has an overabundance of this. We are military and trying to move out west again. My positive experience is out west in Idaho. We lived there from 1995-2003 and I had no allergy or asthma symptoms (maybe every once in a while) but, I didn’t have to take any allergy or asthma medications!! It was wonderful!!! The dry climate is much better for me than the humidity. I always heard about “moving to AZ if you have asthma”. I think this is true….I am much better out west. The humidity makes my asthma symptoms (mold is the culprit for me) worse. With dry heat, mold can’t grow. So, we are going to try to get a humanatarian assignment somewhere out west because I am so sick all the time. I hope we can do this because my husband still has about 6 years left in the USAF and I don’t want to suffer and live here in Florida any longer. We have been here for 3 years now. – Cathy, Florida
Last week’s questions about allergies in Boise Idaho has yielded no comments. But it made me think. We’ve been publishing climate information here in Allergy Climates and Seasons for almost 2 1/2 years. Yet no one has written about the 8 states listed below. Are we to assume that these states are allergy-free? Please share any allergy experience you have had in these states.
- Rhode Island
- West Virginia
Hello, I am considering a move because of my and my son’s allergies (dust mites, tree mold, grass pollen, oak pollen, cherry and dogwood pollen, feathers). I am looking for information about Boise, Idaho, but I don’t see that state even listed. Do you have any information? Could Idaho be listed so that info could be solicited? — Wayne, United States
