I feel ill and sneezing alot after I get out the bath or shower!

I am just wondering what the hell is wrong with me all the time after a bath or shower I feel sick and sneeze so much like sneeze attacks! no one else seems to get sick or sneeze just me!

Sneezing is about 10-30 times!!! Some times I dont get sneez at all.

I do not have this problem from childhood. I am experiancing this for the past 4 years.

Please help.

This question has been around for a while.
Neurologists are not going to answer.
Since it happens only in the shower or the bath you have to look for the answers there.
Mathematically speaking, we have to find the right variable.
What is special there? The answer is temperature and humidity. One more variable is the bath itself. Does it happen in any bath or shower or only in particular. Does it happen in the swimming pool, lake, ocean?
There are only two conditions crossing my mind: allergy and so called vasomotor rhinitis. The latter one usually does not cause sneezing but may be triggered by humidity or temperature.
So, collect and put together all the information I suggested. The next- see an allergoligist. Even if you do not have allergy this specialist , will make the most educated guess.
I hope my answer is at least partially helpful.
