Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Sneezing is a reflex that occurs when the nasal cavity enters a foreign body that triggers inflammation, can be due to allergies, irritation, and even infection. Sneezing is not something that can be controlled. Therefore, it is not quite true if you call "difficult sneezing".
Maybe what you mean is, there is discomfort in the nasal cavity like you want to sneeze. This condition can occur due to many reasons, for example allergic rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal cavity due to allergies), non-allergic rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal cavity, can be due to viral infections, bacterial infections, disorders of blood vessels and nerves around the nose, side effects of drugs, seasonal effects ), rhinosinusitis (inflammation of the nasal cavity and sinuses), nasal polyps (benign tumors originating from the nasal mucosa), enlargement of Konka, entry of foreign objects into the nasal cavity, malignancy, impaired immunity, drug side effects, and so on. All of these conditions can cause inflamed nasal cavities and produce mucus (excessive snot). This snot if it comes out with blood, can occur due to trivial things (for example if you frequently blow your nose too hard or pick up excessive nose), but it can also refer to more serious conditions, for example chronic rhinosinusitis, benign or malignant tumors, blood clotting disorders, etc.
Our advice, if your complaint is very disturbing, check yourself directly to the doctor or ENT specialist. That way, the doctor can do a physical examination, or also assisted with supporting tests, such as x-rays, allergy tests, laboratory, rhinoscopy, nasal cavity endoscopy, and so on before determining the appropriate treatment.
The following initial steps are worth trying:
Perform nasal irrigation, using a syringe that has been removed, filled with intravenous fluids (NaCl), then spray to one side of the nasal cavity, so that it comes out of the other side of the nasal cavity, also do it on the side of the next nasal cavity, repeat several times in a day
Don't blow your nose too hard
Not too prone excessive nose
Stay away from substances that are vulnerable to make you allergic, for example dust, cold, pollen, animal hair, and so on
Do not carelessly take medicine without a doctor's prescription
Expand to eat and drink cold, complete with the consumption of lots of fruits rich in vitamin C
Don't smoke, stay away from the smoke too
Take a shower with warm water, wear clothes that can warm you
Get more rest
Hope this helps ...
