Sneezing is a defensive mechanism that the body does in order to rid the respiratory tract from irritant materials. The explosive exhalation that occurs during a sneeze serves to clear the upper airway. Our nose does a fine job in protecting us, as it filters dust and large airborne particles, preventing them from entering the lungs. In addition, it adjusts air to body temperature before it enters the lungs.

Sneezing brings a person the blessing of relief by releasing vapours that were trapped in the head which, if they were to remain there, would cause him pain and sickness.
Ettiquates on sneezing :
For this reason, Islam tells him to praise Allaah for this blessing and for the fact that his body is still intact after this jolt that shook him like an earthquake for sneezing causes a disturbing movement in the body It was said (concerning the origin of the word tashmeet [which is translated here as saying yarhamuk Allaah, but the original meaning is to tell someone to rejoice at anothers misfortune]): this is telling him to feel joyful because he has annoyed the Shaytaan by praising Allaah for the blessing of sneezing and its association with things that Allaah likes. When a person mentions Allaah and praises Him, this annoys the Shaytaan in several ways, for example: the act of sneezing itself, which Allaah likes; his praising Allaah for it; the Muslims praying for mercy for him; and ...more

When an individual sneezes, the heart stops to beat for second. The tickle which is caused in the nose basically is a sensation of the hair which collects and prevents particles from going further into the body and the irritation results in a sneezing reaction. A sneeze also known as sternutation basically is semi-autonomous, paroxysmal ejection of air from the nose and mouth. Sneezes increase diseases by creating infectious droplets. Sneezing is usually caused because of irritation and occasionally because of bacterial clog up in the throat and ears, lungs, or in the channels of the nose. When a person sneezes, his eyelids reflexively close, perhaps as a response to ease the repulsive pressure which a sneeze creates behind the eyes.
