Why Am I Sneezing?

When your throat or nasal mucous membranes become irritated, you sneeze. Various things can irritate these areas, including:

  • Environmental Allergies: Sneezing is a common symptom of allergies from pollen, dust mites, mold, and pet dander.
  • Environmental irritants: Environmental irritants such as strong scents, peppers, perfumes, and tobacco smoke can make people sneeze. Physical irritants like sunlight can also cause sneezing.
  • Infections: Sneezing can also be a symptom of viral infections like the common cold and the flu. Other symptoms of an infection include coughing, congestion, and a runny nose.
  • Dry or Cold Air: The neurological mechanism that causes sneezing starts with the physical stimulation of the extensive trigeminal nerve. The extensive trigeminal nerve reacts to chemical, mechanical, and tactile stimulation, as well as pain and temperature sensations.

What Are Common Allergy Symptoms?

Allergy symptoms can vary slightly depending on the severity of your allergies. While you might not experience every allergy symptom while experiencing an allergy reaction, the most common allergy symptoms include:

  • Watery, itchy, or red eyes
