Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The cause of allergy may be varied - not restricted to animals / pollen is a typical example.
Food, other contacts could also be causative.

Blood test to find out a cause may help in the long run - if a cause is found, desensitisation can be attempted.

Oral anti-histamines are useful - quite a few of them are available over the counter.
Nasal decongestants (like phenylephrine - used in 'cold' medicines) help

See your GP - he can prescribe.

And finally a practical tip! If sneezing is continuous - just touch the philtrum (groove between the nose and upper lip) with your finger / A second sneeze will not come!
[Inclined to laugh?! - it is scientific / the technique is often used by nurses in the post-operative wards / usually after eye operation / to prevent increase of eye pressure from sneezing / No harm in trying!!]

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

Welcome to HCM,
It seems that you might have some pollen body allergy as you are staying in the farm.
Try staying in the town for few days and observe the effect.
Wear mask if you go in the farm.
Take anti allergic medicine like Cetrizine or Levo cetrizine as and when required.
Avoid dusty atmosphere.
Avoid cold drinks.
Ok and bye.
