Sneezing is your body’s way of cleaning out the nasal passage and discharging irritating particles like dust of pollen. But when you have a cold or allergies, non stop sneezing can make your nasal passage sore and irritated. Some people even get nosebleeds from non stop sneezing. There are some natural cures for sneezing discussed in the following slideshow.

Nettle is shown to ease inflammation in the nasal passages and help reduce congestion that can lead to sneezing. Some people make nettle teas, but an easier solution is to take nettle supplements, available at health food stores. Following the directions on the label, you can take them whenever your nose starts getting a little twitchy.

Evidence has shown that microscopic skin flakes, called dander, often cause sneezing and other allergy symptoms. The best way to get rid of these particles is to wash your sheets and pillow case once a week. Many people find that covering the mattress with a plastic cover and wiping it down once a week will also help stop sneezing.

Millions of people are allergic to cats – and, less often, to dogs. Washing your pet once a week can dramatically decrease the amount of sneeze causing allergens that get into the air – and, of course, into your nose. At the very least you may want to keep your pets out of the bedroom. Spending even just eight hours a day away from their allergy causing particles may help you sneeze less often the rest of the time.

Your best natural remedy against sneezing is to scrub your house clean of allergens. Doctors recommend vacuuming, mopping, and dusting as often as possible, which will help eliminate the dust that causes sneezing. It’s also a good idea to scrub bathrooms and basement, which often harbor large amounts of sneeze causing molds. You may want to wash rugs, pillows, and stuffed animals once a week to wash away allergy causing particles before they cause problems.
