Hold it, don't sneeze in public!


Avoid Embarrassment
Dr Abe V Rotor
Demonstrate this simple method in the classroom or in a group session.  It is good manners and right conduct.  Get feedback from your students and audience.  Ask your family doctor the medical explanation for this remedy. 


Press the base of your nose hard and hold it there until the urge to sneeze subsides. Do it discreetly and subtlety.


Take heed of the warning signs of sneezing: itchy nose, irritated nostril, uncontrollable winking of the eye, and quivering face muscles. Sometimes the urge is so faint you simply dismiss you're not going to sneeze.

The cause may be temporary and minor like sudden change in temperature, dusty carpet, and the invisible dust mites in he bedroom. It could be the perfume of somebody near you. Did the janitor spray the room? Maybe too much air freshener was applied. It could be the newspaper you are reading - no, not the headline, it's the paper and ink.

Sneezing is a sign of low resistance. Maybe you did not get enough sleep last night. More so, if you smoke and drink. And this morning you took strong coffee to keep you from getting drowsy, deny yourself of enough rest.

Now, you will be the next to present a paper in a conference. You can't leave the room, of course. People know if you get out of their sight.

Keep calm. Press the base of your nose hard and hold it there until the urge to sneeze subsides. Do it discreetly and subtlety. Don't show there's something wrong.
Release your hold if the urge totally subsides. Go on with your usual activity. Repeat if the urge comes back.

But once the urge becomes unbearable, find an excuse to leave the room while holding the base of your nose. At this point, sneeze can’t wait. ~
