To keep a sneeze from exploding at a bad time and you feel it coming on quickly, place your index and middle fingers directly beneath your nostrils and above the bow of your upper lip and press firmly until the urge to sneeze disappears (usually about 10-15 seconds) Easy and helpful (esp. in church, etc.)

This may be useful in times where silence is expected, but it is recommended by doctors that you do not supress your sneezes. Mucus can build up inside your nose and ear canal. And in those cases when you can't fully stop the sneeze, the excess pressure that you are causing by attempting to supress it can rupture your eardrum.

exactly it is true what kevin told.it is actually used only in places where silence needs to be maintained.in public places it is not advisible because it is mainly used for silent places,there is no need to hold your nose like tha.it can lead to many problems.

Another sneezing remedy I just heard of is cupping your hands under running water and putting your nose in the water--obviously don't breath in through your nose!
It is a quick and pharma free solution.
Probably best done in the privacy of a bathroom--that is if you don't want to draw a crowd of interested onlookers!
