    Allergies return after 1.5 years during trip to home state.
    uber_Rabbit posted:
    1.5 years ago, I moved my little family to Washington from Idaho. I had seasonal allergies in Idaho for ten years. We move to Washington (Puget Sound area) and they are gone. Like magic. Along with two warts that were on my finger, and a wart on my wife's finger. Poof.

    Then, two weeks ago, we took a three-day trip back to Idaho. My allergies have returned in full force, as if they'd never left. They are still here, despite having returned to Washington.

    How can this be? And what can I do? I have not been taking my Cetirizine, hoping that my body will somehow re-accustom itself to the environment and be happy again.
