What do your sneezes mean?

Published: 18:25 PM, June 19, 2019

Whether it’s a cute, mousy squeak or a loud and heavy explosion, everyone has their own style of sneezing. But should we be concerned about the way our sneeze sounds? What could our sneeze tell us about our health?

Why do we sneeze differently?

Our sneezes may sound different but they happen for the same reason. A sneeze occurs when our nasal lining gets irritated by allergens like pollen, dust mites, or smoke. To get rid of these irritants, our chest muscles compress our lungs, sends a blast of air through our nose, and BOOM: we sneeze!

The sound our sneeze makes depends mainly on anatomy— particularly, the structure of our nostrils and our lung capacity. People with larger nostrils and lung capacity tend to have bigger, louder sneezes as more air escapes their nose and mouth. Other factors such as our personality and culture also play a part in creating our own unique-sounding sneeze.

Ok, so when should I be worried?

It’s not about how loud or soft it is, or how weird or distinct your sneeze sounds— it’s in how frequent it recurs. If your sneezing happens more frequent than normal, this could be a sign of Allergic Rhinitis. More tell-tale signs include a runny or stuffy nose, as well as red, itchy and watery eyes. Visit your doctor if you observe these symptoms.

Allergic Rhinitis could also be caused by an imbalanced immune system. You can reduce the severity of your symptoms with the help of Immunomax Forte with CM-Glucan! Start taking control of your sneezing with just one capsule a day.
