Arizona Is The Worst State For Allergies
Allergy season is in full swing here in Phoenix, and our family physicians are definitely busy with valley cases, symptoms and allergy diagnosis. From the little ones with runny noses and watery eyes to moms and dads with all sorts of symptoms, it’s going to be a long and rough allergy season.
Did you know that people once moved to the Arizona valley to get rid of their allergy symptoms?
Many families and older generations moved to the Phoenix and metro areas to get away from their intense allergy symptoms.
Today, Arizona is rated as one of the worst states for allergy sufferers.
Phoenix was crowned the worst city in the entire United States for allergies, specifically ragweed.
You can blame Arizona ’s increase in ragweed and allergies on our own urban sprawl, when millions of families came to Arizona and established new landscaping. The new irrigation and ‘wetter’ landscaping rapidly grew Phoenix’s ragweed population. Of course, dust is another allergy issue here in the desert, and we definitely have plenty of dust. Dust can not only contribute to allergies, but can intensify asthma associated with the changing seasons as well. Dust itself carries allergens as well as dust mites. Dust and ragweed pollen can lead to sneezing, watery eyes, coughing, wheezing, and trouble breathing.
