I have heard several people to say that they have moved to a different area which has helped with ongoing various symptoms. Does anyone know if really can help.

It depends. If people are in an area where specific aspects of the climate is uncomfortable and move to a place that feels more comfortable, for example with better air quality, the exact same VF symptoms might feel better. Naturally the fungal spores will still be inside you no matter where you go. However, VF patients who choose to relocate usually make that decision to protect their families and visitors from the possibility of contracting Valley Fever.

There is also the possibility of reinfection from additional spores that might break through the degree of immunity that had been developed in a person who already has VF. Although it is rarely discussed or even dismissed by doctors who appear on television, the possibility of reinfection has been proven through the medical literature. People also feel a psychological win just to stop thinking about the possibility of breathing in more spores.

I checked that these were some of the references in VFE:

Salkin D. Clinical examples of reinfection in coccidioidomycosis. In: Ajello L, ed. Coccidioidomycosis. Papers from the second symposium on coccidioidomycosis. Tucson: University of Arizona Press, 1967: P11-18.

Salkin D, Said A. Reinfection with coccidioidomycosis. Clin Infect Dis. 1993 Dec;17(6):1066.

As with many of the best medical journal articles, these are not freely available from the publisher as far as I could find. They might have to be ordered by interlibrary loan or at a medical library. It would just be a matter of asking your local library how that could be done and if any fees would be involved - the library may not always charge you for specific articles.

Best of health,
