• Report: Charlotte ranks among top allergy capitals in US


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Charlotte is one of the most challenging places to live if you have spring allergies.

    The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America has released its top 100 allergy capitals and the Queen City ranks 47.

    Spring allergy season starts in April, and doctors say the highest levels of pollen usually happen during pre-dawn and pre-dusk times.

    “It is very difficult to avoid bad springtime allergies. Raleigh is the city of oaks. And it’s that oak pollen that gives lots of people trouble," said Dr. Brett.

    Charlotte isn't the only North Carolina city high on the list. Greensboro ranks 24.

    Louisville, Kentucky topped the list.
