It sounds like a sneeze to me. My hedgie had an URI, and the first round of antibiotics didn't work either. With the second type of antibiotic, it took almost a week to notice a difference, and then there were still times when she would sneeze again. Do not just take your hedgehog off antibiotics without consulting your vet first, because generally the full prescription of antibiotics will need to taken in order to prevent the URI from returning. Most vets are okay with you just calling the clinic and asking the vet what to do.
