Default Frequent nose licking?

Hi everyone,

I hope I'm not being very overwhelming with my questions, but i just want to make sure my hedgie is okay. Anyway, onto the question.

Recently, I noticed Lily has been licking her nose a lot. It usually starts when I take her out of her cage. She will lick her nose about four or five times, and then she will stop and maybe lick it once or twice during the rest of the time I have her out if it is longer than 30 minutes. I know frequent nose licking is a possible sign of a URI and just want to make sure she is okay. I'm hoping it might just be from her being taken out and reacting to the air and just being woken up, but I want to make sure. She hasn't been sneezing or anything else, so I might be overreacting, but I wanted to get some more opinions. Thanks!
Rest in Peace my beautiful Lily
