At the same time - you can't. When you sneeze, pressure in the larynx-trachea-bronchi increases and the airway can be injured. And, similarly, the pressure spreads to the esophagus, where the veins are dense. Its veins are thin and can "break", and the esophagus itself is thinner and more delicate than the cartilage of the airways, so that injuries and bleeding due to rupture are even more likely there.

Quite. But at the same time "pneumatics" will give into the nasal cavity / nasopharynx, which feels very unpleasant. Maybe you shouldn't solve the issue so drastically, and it is better to just slightly cover up? :)
