Default Pine chips or shredded paper?

We thought before we got our hegdies, that we could use the same pine chips that we had bought for our guinea pig. But, when we went window shopping for a hedgie, the ones that were kept on chips were sneezing. Eventually we googled a info site that stated Hedgies were allergic to pine chips. Yet I see some of you Hedgie owners do use these chips. We use shredded paper and our Hedgies don't sneeze, even those that did before we bought and brought them home. Are Hegdies allergic to PINE CHIPS, or did could it just be coincidence? I still have a bag of guinea pig/rabbit pine chip bedding, and would like to use this if it really is not a problem.
