Sneezing in the Full Face

So, and this is weird, I only sneeze in my full face helmet at stoplights. I guess I'm lucky or allergic to carbon monoxide. So what do you do (if stopped) when you feel a sneeze coming? Do you just blow it in your helmet or try the quick Houdini strap release and blow it on the car beside you?

A good dry sneeze feels great once in a while... I sometimes have to raise my visor and lower my full face helmet a bit to hock out a large wad of lung excretions.

I flip up the visor, and stuff my hand into my face making sure to cover the bridge of my nose, then I wipe off any residuals on a cager as I pass by.

Suppressing a sneeze can cause hemorrhoids.

If you want to stop a sneeze - do like this:
Press hard with your two of your fingers, one on each side close to the wings of your nose. The urge to sneeze will disappear..

I mean hold it in. Don't let it build up to pressure. It feels like a flame in my nose.

Burping in your helmet can be worse than a sneeze...

I wear a modular helmet so no problems with sneeze release. I did have a large winged insect fly into my nose while I was riding. Had the visor cracked open to let in the breeze and it was just enough...woosh, right into a nostril. It was not pleased to be in there, nor was I pleased to have it as a guest. Using the technique I learned playing hockey, I took a deep breath, closed the other nostril with my thumb and exhaled sharply, sending the bugger on his way.

If you want to try to keep from sneezing, and still stay in control of your bike, punch yourself in the top of your thigh to displace the pain from the irritation to your nasal glands. This is what race car drivers do since it is impossible to keep your eyes open when you sneeze.
I don't like the idea of sneezing while riding, but, ever since someone explained that it is somewhat of a nose orgasm, they have become more enjoyable.

Sneezed once when it was 28 degrees out. Shield instantly fogged and I had to open it while going 55 mph.
