Pollen Allergy: Should you live in the city or the countryside?

To be able to provide up to date data and forecasting, the National Allergy Bureau has established a countrywide network of pollen counters equipped with air sampling equipment to capture airborne (pollen) allergens. The number of pollen grains are collected from the air samples, counted, recorded, and broadcast as an advisory to the general population. These pollen counting stations generally operate in the months of March and April, when pollen counts begin to rise dramatically. The data gathered and provided by these stations are very important for suffering from pollen allergy.

During warmer climates, pollen-counting stations remain open. Generally, pollen count is the number of ragweed pollen grains in a volume of air sampling taken over a 24-hour time span in a specific location. High local pollen counts can exacerbate a pollen allergy. Pollen allergy counts are based on a count of 1 to 12: a low pollen count is below 4; moderate is 4 to 8; high is greater than 8.

Considering the pollen allergy is a seasonal occurrence, there are some places with low pollen counts within the United States that might more suitable to live in for some people. The states of Arizona and Nevada are an ideal place to live in because of the relative lack of plants that cause the spread of wind-borne allergens. However, new residents who bring plants and flowers that ultimately contribute to an increase in pollen and pollen allergy sufferers in these relatively pollen-free places are slowly negating this condition.

Relocation is an option that may help some highly sensitive people to avoid certain plants or allergens. Should you choose this option, keep in mind that though mountains and forests may have a low degree of weed pollen, they have a relatively high count of tree pollen. Thickly populated areas and farms generally also have high amount of grass pollens. Although the Pacific Northwest has a lower degree of weed pollen count, it has standard amounts of all other types of pollens. Someone with a pollen allergy should carefully consider these indicators.

The Importance of Being Aware
No matter where one decides to live or spend a vacation, it is important to be aware of local pollen counts and stay indoors or away from allergens to prevent a pollen allergy from interfering in the pursuit of a healthy, active and happy life. There are numerous prescription and over-the-counter medications than can be helpful in managing and dealing with annoying symptoms.

Simply avoiding a pollen allergy source does not automatically guarantee that an individual will not have allergic reactions to other airborne pollutants, which are often more bothersome than pollen. Seek the advice of an allergist about relocation efforts or simple steps to take to make your life a more pleasant experience.
