It is not uncommon to hear that a friend has moved to Phoenix, Arizona to get away from irritating allergy symptoms. People generally think that with less humidity and a drier climate, their environmental allergies will subside. Some might say that their allergies have improved while others will have the opposite effect. Unfortunately, Arizona is not devoid of allergens. Because of this, your physician will not recommend relocating to Phoenix as Arizona hosts its own set of allergens too.
At The Allergy and Environmental Treatment Center, LLC, Dr. Liszewski has every patient’s best interest at heart, ensuring that the best care and treatment is given at every single appointment. Located in Scottsdale, Arizona, our facility is conveniently located to give patients better access to our unprecedented care.
Part of quality care is being honest with our patients. Dr. Liszewski and the team would never give patients advice that we wouldn’t trust ourselves. This includes the myth that allergies will subside in rural Arizona. Dust and pollen are all relevant in Arizona communities, often worsening people’s allergy symptoms.
Pollen in Arizona
Pollen-producing plants exist in Arizona. According to research, 35 percent of people in Arizona experience allergic rhinitis (hay fever). If you live in Arizona, or plan to move here, avoid planting these shrubberies, as they could interrupt your allergy treatment:
• Arizona cypress, ash, and sycamore
• African sumac
• Palo Verde
• Pepper tree
Dust in Arizona
There is no avoiding dust in Arizona. During monsoon season especially, dust storms exacerbate allergy treatment and increase symptoms such as asthma, coughing, wheezing, and teary eyes. If you suffer with dust allergies, consider these tips to reduce symptoms:
• Vacuum often
• Use wet mops and wet dusters when cleaning
• Keep pets in sectioned area in your home
• Cover pillows and mattress with dust-proof casings
• Get rid of carpet
• Avoid using feather pillows
