Sneezing fits - why do I get them so often? watch

    • Thread Starter

    For as long as I can remember, I have always had sneezing fits nearly everyday. I never sneeze less than 3 times one after the other, and just a few minutes ago, I sneezed about 7 or 8 times. It happens in all seasons too, not just summer or winter. I do have allgeries, but this happens too often and just annoys me. Even if it's not cold I sneeze. Anyone know why else this could be happening and how I could stop it?

    EDIT: Not sure if this should have gone in H&R, mods please move if necessary.

    a quick search on google revealed the following:

    Those sneeze-causing allergens include pollen, grass, mold, pet dander and dust mites, says Dr. Middleton. The most common irritants are smoke or perfume, says Susan R. Wynn, M.D., an allergist in private practice with Fort Worth Allergy and Asthma Associates in Texas.

    "Colds and upper respiratory infections can bring on sneezing, along with a host of other symptoms. A quick change in temperature, such as walking into an air-conditioned room from the afternoon heat, can also make you sneeze. Expectant mothers frequently complain of sneezing and stuffiness when hormonal changes produce what's called rhinitis of pregnancy. And some people are compelled to sneeze when their eyes meet up with bright sunlight."

    i dont know how accurate this is, maybe go and see your doctor if its serious?
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
