Sneezing is a sudden, forceful, involuntary burst of air through the nose and/or mouth.
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.
- Allergy to pollen, mold, dander, dust (allergy or hay fever)
- Virus infections (common cold, upper respiratory tract infections)
- Opiate withdrawal
- Corticosteroid inhalation
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.
