“I wouldn’t recommend suppressing a sneeze by any method, whether by pinching one’s nose or consciously sneezing into a closed throat.”
– said Alan Wild, a head and neck surgeon and assistant professor of otolaryngology at Saint Louis University School of Medicine.
We might not want to sneeze at time, probably if you are in a meeting or at a dinner party. We try to hold on to it or stop it by holding our nose or holding our upper lip to our lower lip, but that’s bad it could Clamp your nostrils and it could damage your eardrums or sinuses or cause ear infections. So, don’t ever do that again.
Occasionally, people will cause some damage to their eardrums or their sinuses if they stifle a very violent sneeze,” says Dr. Szekely, an immunologist in the Department of Pulmonary, Allergy and Critical Care Medicine at Cleveland Clinic.
If you hold on to your sneeze, the discharge that causes the germs will be suppressed in your body which will only make it worse for you. Sneezing helps you to get rid of those infectious particle out of your body.
Sneezing acts as a protective reflex when there is an irritant that enters your body through your nose it keeps it away from getting through your lungs or sinuses.
A violent sneeze could cause a stroke or might even blow out a kidney. If you hold on to sneezing it will enter your body even further. We don’t want that right?
So, Let it go… sneeze as much as you want. Just remember to cover your mouth while doing it. You Don’t want to put anyone else in trouble as well.
