Best Answer

You sneeze more when you have a cold because the lining of your nose is very inflamed, and your nasal passages are full of mucus. Very often, this mucus, or something caught in it, irritates your already inflamed nose, and makes you feel a tickle. This causes you to sneeze forcefully, helping to clear the excess mucus from your nose.
