Sneezing is a way of removing irritants from the nose in the body. It gets triggered by allergens, dust, nasal irritants, inhalation of corticosteroids, drug withdrawal, and infections like common flu. It is managed by avoiding the triggering agents causing it. Taking antihistamine medications provides some relief. Anti-allergy medications like Cetirizine and Loratadine can be taken to manage it.
