Sunshine makes me sneeze. Photic sneezing. It doesn't affect everyone.

From kidshealth.org:

Do you know anyone who sneezes when they step outside into the sunshine? About one out of every three people sneezes when exposed to bright light. They are called photic sneezers (photic means light). If you are a photic sneezer, you got it from one of your parents because it is an inherited trait. You could say that it runs in your family. Most people have some sensitivity to light that can trigger a sneeze.

Have you ever had the feeling that you are about to sneeze, but it just gets stuck? Next time that happens, try looking toward a bright light briefly (but don't look right into the sun) - see if that doesn't unstick a stuck sneeze!

Happens to me all the time...Inside to out...I usually give 2-3 hard ones back to back to back. My sternum feels like it is going to split

Happens to my 4 year old buy as well.
