Traveling with Allergies and Asthma, An Infographic

Yes, another infographic, what are the chances? Funny enough I came across this one and When Allergies Attack: Asthma and Allergies in America, within one week of each other, but decided to space them out in an effort not to overwhelm you with infographics.

Enjoy the statistics and keep the information in mind when planning your travels this holiday season. One last thing, let’s give Hyatt a round of applause for having the best allergy control standards in place!

    Sorry, but that includes some wrong info. You mention Albuquerque, NM as a city to travel to for people who suffer from allergies. Don’t think so! February to April is the famous Juniper bloom, and the northern part of New Mexico has some of the highest pollen counts on earth in that time. Like, “put on your windshield wipers after your car was parked for an hour, to get the yellow dust out of your view” amounts of pollen. And in fall the Chamisa blooms, also leaving plenty of people sick. Many people move here (and Santa Fe) for the clean air. That is true for about 7-8 months out of the year. The other 4-5 are BAD!

    • Yikes! I guess there really is no allergy free zone anywhere. Thanks for the heads up!

    • Oh gosh, I can imagine. My son has tree nut allergies, but not airborne, so we’re lucky there.

    This is very interesting. I can’t believe my state of TN isn’t in the top “sneeziest” cities! I would love to see what the most allergic states where 100 years ago and if it is the same.

    • Holly – Great point! It would be very curious to see if the environmental allergens are changing and if some areas are more affected now. Jennifer

    This is interesting! I always bring my medication with me on trips (obviously) and it hasn’t stopped me from traveling. I have even lugged my nebulizer over the Atlantic on a trip to France! In general, I have the most issue with pollen, but when traveling, it’s almost always the hotel room – regardless of how expensive, cheap, fancy or modest it is. It seems like I’m always rubbing my eyes, sneezing, having sinus problems or wheezing. Luckily, it’s nothing that can’t be managed with medication but it is frustrating.

    • Wow, carting a nebulizer to France…that’s quite an achievement! It would almost need it’s own small suitcase! What do you do when traveling to avoid the issues in the room? Have you thought about asking the hotels for air purifiers? I’m sure the higher end hotels would offer it. Maybe next time you can try one of top hotels in this list that claim to be more allergy friendly.

        I have stayed at Doubletree and Westin actually – and don’t recall any issues. I typically just bring lots of Benadryl and Sudafed – and most of my trips don’t involve much time spent in the room thankfully.

        I wonder if there are mini air purifiers that I could bring on my own. I had purchased a compact nebulizer specifically for the trip to France. It was a good thing because I ended up needing it!

        If you’re interested, by the way, it was something like this: http://www.phc-online.com/PulmoMate_Nebulizer_p/devilbiss-4650d.htm which wasn’t too difficult to transport.
