I can count on sneezing every time I put pepper on something or in something. Usually 2-3 times and I don’t hold it back either!

This is me. Every time I do fried eggs and put pepper on it I sneeze. Maybe the heat from the skillet causes a higher concentration to become airborne.

I also sometimes sneeze when coming out into the sunlight.

Also working and me or someone else moves something causing some dust (Doesn't have to be much) to become airborne.)

I really hate it when I'm driving and I have to sneeze. It is physically impossible to keep your eyes open when you sneeze and there's that split second of panic when your eyes are closed you're going to miss something causing you to have an accident.

Edit: Also forgot about it, but in winter, indoors, the dry air will definitely cause me to sneeze - I think it's just because my nasal passages are so dry and they can get itchy.

Multiple times a day. Stretches in the winter when it dies down. That's with using flonase daily. Not allergic to anything specific based on my last visit to the allergy doctor 10 years ago but seasonal allergies or traveling to drastically different climates never fail to trigger a little extra.

I sneeze probably 30 times a day. I’ve got a basic allergy to cats, I say basic because it doesn’t bother me unless a cat is really close to me. My wife has a cat, and each daughter has a cat. As the universe would have it, each of those cats have decided I’m their favorite person.

Finally, a thread to shine. Sneezing is what I do.

5-20 violent sneezes daily on average. If I pluck a nose hair… sneeze. After eating… sneeze. Seasonal allergies… sneeze, sneeze, sneeze.

When I sneeze I almost always sneeze at least 3 times, sometimes up to a dozen. It’s loud. It makes me stop what I am doing to sneeze it out.

My sister sneezes 4 or 5 times consecutively and probably twice or three times a day. I myself maybe once a day?

Also, there have been some grade A off-season threads the last few days. .

I sneeze so hard that I'll lose my voice sometimes. Also usually the sun makes me sneeze when I go outside from in. This is a condition with many people with blue eyes.

Two women were setting next to each other on a bus when one of them sneezed. The woman next to her notice that she grabbed a tissue but instead of wiping her nose she discreetly patted between her legs.

After several minutes the first woman had repeated this sneezing and patting several times, and the second woman couldn't help herself.

"Excuse me, but I couldn't help noticing your having an issue with your... sneezing."

"Oh I'm so embarrassed," the woman replied, but I've got a rare medical condition in which I have a small orgasm every time I sneeze."

"Oh my, that sounds... difficult. Are you taking anything for it?" she asked.

"Of course," the sneezing woman replied. "Pepper!"

I sneeze at least a few times a day
Same. Except now I take Allegra twice a day every day. My dear family decided we needed a cat... a few months later I found out I have cat allergies. I suspect I had other allergies as well but thought it was normal to sneeze a handful of time every day for no particular reason.

Chocolate is a funny one. Some types of chocolate make me sneeze every time. Others never.

I'm a loud sneezer too. I can't understand how it is even possible to stifle a sneeze into one of those little things where you don't actually sneeze at all.

Back about 25 years ago I was given a particular cologne or aftershave. I don't wear that stuff often. And I only apply it sparingly. It took me about 20 times before I realized it was making me sneeze. Connecting the dots was slow on that one.

Also a loud-sneezer, although volume can vary.

Drives spousal500 crazy. When I do an especially big one, she proclaims, "Unnecessary!"

If I am able to stifle/control it (maybe in a social situation) - it's almost "unsatisfying."

Fun fact - between 10 and 35% of people will sneeze when exposed to bright light after being in a darker area. It's thought to be caused by incidental interaction of neurons responsible for sneezing and pupil contraction.

I do this for sure. If I feel a sneeze coming on, looking into a bright light can help get it out.
This is the only way I can sneeze; looking at a bright light/sun.
