The major parasite you are likely to get in usa is giardia (a protozoan) which can be diagnosed easily.

The trigeminal nerve system regulates each of these areas, so one theory is that direct nerve stimulation causes the reflex and another theory is that a central "sneezing" center in the brainstem is responsible. ...Read more
