I often sneeze after eating breakfast cereal. Does this make sense?

@gollum,
If it's dry and has lots of cereal dust it does. Surprising there would be enough air currents to get it into the sinuses. If it clearly isn't that, I would be interested in what's going on.

Thank you.

Yes, it a store-brand apparently a copy of Cheerios.

So, is there any solution to the problem?

I add milk to the cereal, which might address the dust problem.

Possible I should avoid cereal or accept sneezing as the price of good nutrition.

You might try pouring the dry cereal outside.

@gollum,
If it really bothers you and do come from cereal, why not use a mask? I think you can get them in a package for one time. I use them when I sand paper wood, but that is one much thicker.

@gollum,
I sneeze immediately after putting an altoid in my mouth. I don't stop having altoids - just dealing with the sneezing.

@gollum,
My guess would be that since you are morning sitting upright after laying down for many hours in bed, the mucus in your sinuses is shifting position, causing the tickling which, in turn, causes the sneezing. the act of chewing - especially crunchy cereal - probably helps the mucus with its morning migration from the vibrations of the impact in you mouth resonating throughout your whole head.

@gollum,
I sneeze after rice crispies, mixed grain chex and a few other cereals. It's always just about a minute or so after finishing the bowl. Happens night or day. I don't think it's the dust. I often take the empty cereal bags after my kids finish a box of cereal and collapse them and that let's out a bunch of dust and I never sneeze from that. Hmmmm.....
