Hi, one of the common reasons for excessive sneezings on exposure to ac and after waking up in the morning are sinusitis and allergic rhinitis. In both the cases persons sensitivity will be high due to lowered immunity. A person starts responding more to normal stimulus. You will need homeopathic medicines to improve the same and resolve the problem. As a precautionary measure, avoid eating and drinking cold foods and drinks, avoid curds at nights and on monsoon days. Take steam inhalation daily once or times to get some relief for your symptoms. To get your problem cured take an online private consultation through Lybrate.
1. Do saline gargles daily. 2. Whenever possible do steam inhalation also. 3. Cover your nose and mouth with hanky for at least 30 sec when you go in dusty areas also when you go in and out of ac. As our nose is the most sensitive part of our body, when there is a temperature difference between two rooms or inside n outside, then if we not protect our nose, it gets affected. 4. Drink hot liquids --hot liquids relieve nasal congestion, prevent dehydration, and soothe the uncomfortably inflamed membranes that line your nose and throat. 5. Sleep with an extra pillow under your head-- elevating your head will help relieve congested nasal passages. If the angle is too awkward, try placing the pillows between the mattress and the box springs to create a more gradual slope. 6. Treat that stuffy nose with warm salt water-- salt-water rinsing helps break nasal congestion, while also removing virus particles and bacteria from your nose. 7. Blow your nose often (and the right way)-- it's important to blow your nose regularly when you have a cold rather than sniffling mucus back into your head. But when you blow hard, pressure can carry germ-carrying phlegm back into your ear passages, causing earache. The best way to blow your nose: press a finger over one nostril while you blow gently to clear the other. Homoeopathic treatment has very encouraging results. Consult online for details.
