Sometimes dust, flakes of dead skin, pollution, microbes, or your own booger buildup from a cold find their way into your nose’s air passages. When mucous membranes in the lining of your nose detect these intruders, they send an urgent message to your brain: Unleash a sneeze!

It may be annoying, but sneezing is good for you. It’s an important part of your immune process, and helps protect your body against bacteria and viruses. So, the next time you feel a sneeze coming on, let it out. It’s your body’s way of keeping you safe.

Holding in a sneeze can be dangerous. A sneeze is so powerful that keeping it in can rupture your eardrums, cause your nose to bleed or damage the blood vessels in your eyes and brain.
