    Why do you sneeze often?

    Sneezing is a defense reflex associated with the removal of foreign particles from the airways. Why do you sneeze often? There may be several reasons.

    Often sneeze: reasons

    First of all, you need to figure out why a person sneezes at all. Bacteria, dust, allergens deposited on the nasal mucosa irritate the nerve endings and the corresponding signal is transmitted to the brain. As a result of a sharp contraction of the muscles of the chest, the air from the lungs is pushed out through the nose with force, sweeping away all obstacles in its path. That is why after sneezing a person is relieved.

    Frequent sneezing can be explained by several factors.

    1. Viral and bacterial infections. One answer to the question “Why do I sneeze very often?” Is a cold. With a cold, sneezing is accompanied by copious discharge of mucus from the nose, difficulty breathing, itching in the nose. Frequent sneezing is characteristic of diseases such as SARS, influenza, measles, chickenpox.Sneezing can also be provoked by bacteria that have settled in the trachea, bronchi, nasopharynx.
    2. Allergy. In the spring and autumn period, a large number of people seek the help of allergists, since at this time there is an active flowering of plants. As an allergen can act not only pollen, but also animal hair, particles of house dust and mold, tobacco smoke and other specific odors.
    3. Pregnancy. During pregnancy, hormonal changes occur in the body of women, which can provoke a runny nose. There is such a thing as "rhinitis pregnant." As a rule, the disease manifests itself several weeks before childbirth and can face serious complications, as breathing difficulties negatively affect the work of the heart and lungs. The difficulty of treatment is the inability to use vasodilators due to their danger to the fetus.
    4. Sneezing newborn. If you exclude a cold, sneezing in babies can be caused by bright light or not enough moist air in the room. Some babies sneeze during feeding, since sucking movements irritate the mucous membrane of the nasopharynx that is not fully formed.In addition, the nose of the baby produces a large amount of mucus, which, forming a crust, causes involuntary sneezing.
