In brief: Arid

Arizona is a perfect example of a good place to live if you have chronic asthma and there are others.

In brief: Control the asthma

It is important to control asthma, not to allow the asthma to control you.
Those who are allergic to pollen tend to react to any pollens prevalent in the area, so don't move to another climate just for this. However, if fumes/smog/pollution triggers your child's asthma, you live in an urban area, and you refuse to use air conditioning in the summer, moving out of the city might be an option.
