I am 86. But a lot of years ago, maybe when I was 9 or 10, I learned to sneeze in a certain way.

When a sneeze leads to an attack

The normal sneeze would trigger an attack or at least a severe shortness of breath.
So I developed a sneeze where I sort of hold back and expel it through almost a closed mouth.
Any validity to this, because people besides my wife wonder about it.
It works for me.

Although I still have asthma.
