Dry climates and year round chronic pollen allergies

My 22 year old son suffers with year round chronic allergies and is considering moving from Louisiana to a better climate.

Are there suggestions for areas with better success for allergy sufferers?

    Hi, Marcel, and welcome! What sort of allergies does your son suffer from? If it's dust mites, then moving to a place like Denver, with a high desert type of climate with low humidity, might help. 

    But unfortunately many allergists find that a person will develop allergies to local pollen once they live in that place for a few years. 

    What strategies does your son currently use to help his allergies?

    Thank you!  He suffers from year round allergy to EVERYTHiNG outdoors.  He does allergy shots, Singulair, Zyrtec, and Dymista.

    We suspected that moving may just present his body with the problem of discovering "new" allergies.

    He would like to source an allergist/immunologist that might be highly sought after, for a second opinion.

    Maybe a clinic that participates in medical trials.  Anything is worth a shot.  He basically does everything to stay indoors.

    If anyone can suggest a highly regarded clinic, we would check into it.

    Could he reach out to teaching hospitals’ allergy and immunology departments? When I think Louisiana, I think of Tulane, but I’m sure you guys have several great options to choose from. 

    Teaching hospitals tend to see a wider range of complex cases, and that’s where research studies are often done. 

    Another world famous hospital for allergies and asthma is National Jewish in Denver… but that would be quite a trip. 

    It sounds like he’s doing quite a lot! I hate that he’s struggling so.

    @Marcel stuart how is your son doing? Did he contact National Jewish or another hospital to seek a second opinion?
