Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Sniffing, sneezing, coughing, etc. all these activities increase the pressure inside the head- intracranial pressure.This increased pressure causes the headache. The only remedy is stop sniffing too hard and keep your nose moist by applying mustard oil in it.
