User:but yes once i wake up and after bath, I sneeze for 10 - 15 times
Doctor:If it is only sneezing for 10-15 minutes, you can just use some saline nasal spray.

User:but do banana helpful taking at nght
Doctor:That should help in the long run. But don't eat the small plantains.. they are very fattening and don't have any useful fibre
