Do you sneeze when you walk outside into bright sunlight?

    I always have and I don't know why.  I am just wondering if anyone else out there does too.

    Yes! I never used to, or I never noticed, but I have the last couple of years. I thought it was just me!

      My kids do it too.  My husband teases that I "gave" it to them.

    When I read this I was shocked. I don't so why do you sneeze when I thought moderate sun exposure is suppose to provide Vitamin D which the body needs?

    I don't think my sneezing has anything to do with bright light.  I nearly always sneeze when coming out of a 72 degree air-conditioned building, out to a very warm day of, say, 95 degrees F.  Oh, and it works in reverse, as well -- from a hot outdoors to a cooled home.  My problem is triggered by abrupt temperature changes.

    Looking at the diagnosis of vasomotor rhinitis a long time ago, this was one of the noticeable symptoms of that condition.  People with my condition have a nerve imbalance in the nasal passages.
