    I have noticed since I was 4 that bright lights would cause me to sneeze. I was wondering if it was just me. I ran across this article today.

    18 to 35 percent seems to be a wide range.

    Does a bright light make you sneeze?

    Same thing I do, sometimes it seems like it could go either way and looking at light makes it happen.

    no, but they say looking into a bright light will help you sneeze when you feel one coming on
