: In the summer when I leave an airconditioned building I often sneeze in direct sunlight. Is this an allergy or just a weird mental quirk?
You really need to observe your total surroundings. Maybe you simply associate this with sunlight because you are OUTSIDE.
Perhaps you have an allergy to something outside.
I'm allergic to the sun. It would be a relief if I simply sneezed in sunlight. When I'm exposed to sunlight (even indoors through a window)
I develop hives, swelling, my skin feels severely burnt within minutes. Sunscreens and antihistamines do not help. Avoidance of the sun is
the only answer for me. I have to live like a vampire! Thank the dear Lord I live in a time when society provides 24 hour services!
I really think that if you become more aware of your surroundings you will find what makes you sneeze.
