I say no. The humidity can be oppressive...not to mention the much longer allergy season. I live in Alabama and have all my life. I have asthma and while it's not that cold here - though we do get cold spells - the 100 degree heat index this past week has sent everyone running for cover - and air conditioning.
If she truly has asthma, she's always going to be on medication and have to watch out for triggers. Fact of life. Of course, as young as she is, she will most likely outgrow it.

But allergy season in the south typically lasts from March to October/November. And that's when it's the most humid. Nothing like going outside and having your breath taken away by the humidity and atmospheric pressure. I'm in Alabama and for about the last 10 days we've had heat index over 100. Rain came thru yesterday and more is coming so it's cooling down to the 90's and then 80's by the first of the week. But it will go back up again!

Unless you plan to live on the coast, I can't see SC as an option that's better than where you are. You are simply swapping cold related asthma attacks for humidity/allergy related ones. Are you seeing a pediatric pulmonologist? If not, I strongly recommend one. They do much better with the little ones.

Thank you so much por all your suggestions Tichou. I'll going to take a short vacation and also make the test for radon. You're right about the humidity can be difficult, so I'll see how they respond. Thank you again for your help and I wish you the best.
