In brief: Foreign Bodies
The function of sneezing is to expel mucus containing foreign particles or irritants and cleanse the nasal cavity.
Remedies for sneezing would include the deep exhalation of the air in the lungs that would otherwise be used in the act of sneezing, holding one's breath in while counting to ten or gently pinching the bridge of the nose for several seconds.
