Holding Back Sneezes Could Cause Unlikely Injuries

To play it safe and stop unlikely injuries from sneezing, let loose your sneeze. Or if you need to hold it, let the pressure out through your mouth as a form of cough.
Sneezes are very powerful—we can sneeze at forty MPH and at distances up to thirtyfeet. And there’s nothing worse than needing to sneeze however not having the ability to. Sometimes, you only ought to stop a sneeze. However, that can’t be good for us, can it?


Dr. Dale Tylor, a santa barbara medical specialist told Digg what would happen if you held in all your sneezes. Turns out, holding in your sneezes isn’t terrible for your health, however it’s not nice either.

At worst, you'll be able to rupture your eardrum or pop a blood vessel in your eye, however that’s unlikely. If you stop a violent sneeze, the pressure from the sneeze might carry into your sinuses and skull. 

This may result in little gaps within the bones between the nose and eyes or the nose and brain. However these gaps heal on their own. Therefore, they are nothing to stress about.

To play it safe and stop unlikely injuries from sneezing, let loose your sneeze. Or if you need to hold it, let the pressure out through your mouth as a form of cough.
