Sexual sneezing: Has been reported since at least 1897. This may be related to the changes in blood flow that occur with sexual arousal (it goes to your nose as well as elsewhere) rather than being "allergic" to sex. It might help to use a steroid nasal spray or decongestant prior to sex. Good luck! one medical article about this is at: <a href="<a href="http://onlinelibrary.Wiley.Com/doi/10.1034/j.1398-9995.2001.
