A MAN has blown a hole in his throat after trying to hold in a sneeze, with doctors saying his grim story should act as a warning to others. Doctors have seen patients with similar injuries after coughing heavily or after vomiting forcefully.

The man's case has been detailed in the journal BMJ Case Reports.

And in some cases, you could break bones in your ear or lose your hearing completely due to the suppressed sneeze.

Sneezes can spread diseases, so although it is good to "let them out", make sure you catch them in a tissue, say experts.
