What make it worse and what makes it better? Is it related to anything such as dust, pollen, or dander?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Do you get short of breath of have breathing difficulties?

Expert:  Dr. Scott replied 8 months ago.

Sneezing that is not related to any allergies is usually classified as chronic sinusitis or rhinitis. You should first try to take an antihistamine for about a week. You should take it daily. I always recommend zyrtec.

In the meantime, you should make any appointment with your primary care doctor to make sure no medications you are on can be causing your symptoms.

Nasal polyps are a common cause of sneezing without other symptoms. You doctor will be able to screen for those at your next appointment.

You should also get an inhaled nasal steroid from your prescribing physician.
