The wet and milder winter this year, due to El Niño, means allergy sufferers need to brace themselves for an earlier and stronger allergy season.
In fact, spring allergy season has already arrived in many parts of the country.
And with it has come a whole lot of sniffling, sneezing, watery eyes and… let’s face it… misery.
But it turns out some folks with spring allergies are worse off than others simply because of where they live.
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) crunched the numbers including …
- pollen counts
- allergy med usage
- and even where certified allergists have hung out their shingles
The result is their annual list of the worst cities to live in if you’re a spring allergy sufferer.
