It's an irritant: Any nose spray can make you sneeze, even if it's a prescription. It just means the nose has been stimulated with something it finds a little obnoxious. You don't want to use vick's for longer than 3 to 5 days, it will start to make your nasal tissue swollen. Then you will need to use the Vicks to treat the problem with the vicks. We call this rebound, or rhinitis medicamentosa.
