HEALTH TIPS ON SNEEZING

Sneezing is an involuntary removal of air by the body to remove irritants from the nose and throat. It is also called sternutation. Sneezing does not usually signify a serious health problem but causes weakness and loss of focus.

Sometimes irritants such as dirts, viruses, bacteria and debris enters our nose and causes serious irritation to the sensitive mucous membranes which results in sneezing.

To keep away from sneezing, one must avoid things that triggers sneezing by washing any materials or items that may contain dust, pepper and any other irritant. You might also decide to purchase an air filtration machine to clean the air in your home. If you have infection like the common cold or flu which also causes sneezing, you can take antiviral medications to speed up your recovery. Taking lot of fluids can also aid your body to recover fast.

Engaging in some tricky activities like pinching your ears, holding your nose and stopping your breath sometimes can stop sneezing or delay it to grab some tissue.
