I think with all these anti allergy medicines, we’re really tackling allergies the wrong way.
If there’s a problem, you don’t treat the symptom, you treat the cause. That’s why we should just vacuum all the pollen on our lawns.
It’s not the pollen’s fault.

Or you can move to another climate/state/country/planet where you won’t be exposed to the seasonal allergy triggers. You can leave your lawn as is.
LB- is there such a place? Please tell me about it before next allergy season starts. I’m moving there for the Spring, b”n.
I live in Monsey and suffer from these seasonal allergies. I have found that over the past 20 years or so, whenever I am in HK or China during the spring, they are either non existent or much more milder than usual. However in the years that I travel to Keristier for the Yahrzeit of R’ Shayala they are there in force.
Yes. I don’t get seasonal allergies anymore. I grew up in the mid-east and dealt with miserable annual stuff.
I wish I could tell you privately because here I would be publicizing too much.
It def exists.
You can maybe Google best areas to live in the US for allergy sufferers
You get allergies in Israel?
Yes there are seasonal allergies in Israel too. Israeli trees also make pollen, and since the blossoming season starts sometime in shevat, and winter frost that usually puts an end to summer allergies doesn’t really ever come, seasonal allergies sort of become all-year round allergies. and then there are all those sandstorms, not great at all for those with respiratory problems. B”H for allergy medications!
It can take time to develop an allergy – so that someone moving to a new place/climate might be fine in the beginning, but after several years, the allergic reaction starts again.
WtP -“and then there are all those sandstorms, not great at all for those with respiratory problems”
Even without sandstorms, when I was there, the sand went up my nose.
That was the only allergies that bothered me there. They don’t have too many trees, so my allergies that I have here in the US, didn’t bother me!
Lakewood is the worst place for allergies that I’ve ever been in. But how bad it is depends on the year. There have been some years that were far worse than others.

It’s interesting – I have often found that the second year that I lived in a new place was often the worst. Although in some of the cases, I think it happened to be a bad allergy that year in general.
“Although in some of the cases, I think it happened to be a bad allergy that year in general. “
True true. Good point. Some years are worse than others.
LU -“Lakewood is the worst place for allergies that I’ve ever been in.”
The city I grew up in – is worse than Lakewood. When I moved to Lakewood, my allergies weren’t as bad as before!
