5 Worst Cities for Spring Allergy Sufferers

Fourth-worst springtime-allergy city: McAllen, Texas
Spring allergy score: 91.37

This South Texas city has perennial problems with springtime allergies, coming in second place in last year's AAFA study.

Located along the U.S.-Mexican border, McAllen has above-average springtime pollen counts, with mountain cedar, Arizona cypress, elm, ash and poplar trees all causing particular problems.

The 775,000-person metro area also has above-average springtime use of allergy medications, plus a low level of board-certified allergists (the American Board of Medical Specialties says there are just two in the city proper).

"McAllen is bad on all three of our indicators," Tringale says.
