Continuous sneezing


I have been having this problem of regular and violent sneezing.I mostly get these bouts after after taking a bath.Sometimes even simple things like the smell of perfume and dust causes sneezing. Also once the sneezing starts it goes on continuously till i take some anti allergy medicines like cetzine.This has been going on for the past 10-12 year. It is always followed by a throat infections which gets relieved after a dose of antibiotics. But now the problems are getting worse. After even one sneeze i get to feel heaviness in breathing and start getting a pain in my upper back and neck. Also when i get up in the morning there is always a heaviness in breathing and neck pain.

Can anybody help

Hello and hope you are doing well.

In an entity called allergic rhinitis, the symptoms are similar to a common cold, but they are usually more persistent and show seasonal variation with episodes of sneezing. The individual responds to an allergen, which can be in many forms like dust and household mites. It appears that you are suffering from such a phenomenon. But the tightness in the chest could indicate Asthma, which is also triggered by allergens. It is a disease affecting the lungs causing narrowing of the airways, usually due to an allergic reaction to triggering factors. Have yourself evaluated for the same. This can be detected by a spirometry test.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

hi, try these things;
from vitamin store buy Pro-biotics; enough to take 100 BILLION cultures daily x 1 month, 50 bil x 1 mo, stay at 25 billion cultures daily

2nd, try some anti inflammation ; 2 teaspoons daily of Tumeric (spice avail everywhere)
and include daily a 24 hr non drowsy anti histamine (claritan) or other avail all drug stores and no prescription needed
. . if taking a bath causes this; STOP, shower instead and quickly at medium warm temp
and leave the bath door open

       . good luck
