Look at a light.: Often staring at a bright light (not sun) will trigger a sneeze. Also try pepper.

Sneezing: What you are describing is probably a nasal allergy. This can be allergy to dust, pollens, house dust, mites grasses or weeds. Try an over the counter antihistamine e.g. Generic Claritin to see if it helps your condition. See your doctor for help with allergies, although you may need to see an allergist.
