Hi there,

To stop sneezing, which might be a result of allergens; I suggest that you use one of the antiallergy medications like chlorpherniramine maleate (Avil), or Loratidine or Cetrizine or Levocetrizine and Monteleukast combination.

Sneezing can affect your tympanoplasty that you had last week.

I hope you visit with the operating surgeon to get the right medication and follow up.

Let me know if you have more concerns.

Take care and have a lovely day !
