Jackson packs allergy power!

Posted: Updated:

Louisville, Memphis and Baton Rouge are going to be extra sneezy this spring according to the Spring Allergies Capitals report from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.

The report combines data on pollen count, allergy medication use and the number of allergists in the area and assigns a score.

Oklahoma City, Jackson, Mississippi, Chattanooga and Dallas also top the list of challenging places to live with spring allergies. New York City, Columbia, South Carolina and San Antonio cracked the top twenty for the first time while Los Angeles fell nearly 40 spots from last year to number 77.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America is a not-for-profit organization that receives funding from allergy medication manufacturers.
