Hey guys,

I live in Austin, which is considered a really bad place for allergies. And I really don't have them too bad, I usually blow my nose a couple of times when I wake up and that's it.
Two years ago though, I lived in South Austin and the allergies were just horrendous, I never had anything like it - I would cough up phlegm while talking to people, and it was just horrible - I was here between October and January and it was bad all the time. Specifically I remember being worse around December (must be allergic to Cedar then).

This time around though, it's really not bad. I try to keep my windows closed most of the time, and I have a little hepa filter that might be helping.

My question is as follows - I plan to move to a place around 15 blocks away from here, still very urban, but I am afraid my allergies will pick up there, is that a possibility ? Maybe I've been cured for the most part ? The new area will have more vegetation but not as much as in South Austin where I used to live.

Thank you!

I don't think I would notice anything for a day unfortunately. I will definitely try it out and go to the park there for a while, sounds like a good idea. Thing is I usually don't really notice it until a full day later when I wake up with mucus and the likes (guess I need to sleep somewhere around that area then)
