Why do people sneeze when they get cold?

Report as

The reason why you sneeze when you get cold is because the temperature drop causes nasal congestion and irritation and sneezing is the body's way of removing this irritation. Therefore when someone catches a cold they sneeze to ease nasal congestion.
