Definition

Sneezing is a sudden, forceful, involuntary burst of air through the nose and/or mouth.

Phenomenon

Sneezing is caused by irritation to the mucous membranes of the nose or throat, can be very bothersome but is generally not a sign of a serious problem.

Common Causes

  • Allergy to pollen, mold, dander, dust (allergy or hay fever)
  • Virus infections (common cold, upper respiratory tract infections)
  • Opiate withdrawal
  • Corticosteroid inhalation

Treatment

The most effective means of controlling sneezing caused by allergic diseases is avoiding exposure to the offending allergen (Removal of Causa Occasionalis).

Some suggestions to minimize exposure include:

  • Removing pets from the home to avoid animal dander
  • Changing furnace filters
  • Using air filtration devices to minimize the concentration of airborne pollens
  • Traveling to areas with low pollen counts during the critical periods
  • Even changing residence to eliminate a mold spore problem may be necessary.

    For sneezing not caused by an allergy, the problem will disappear when the underlying disorder is cured.
