Default Rosie's Sniffles

I've had my hedgies for almost 2 years and I got them directly from a breeder. Today, I took Rosie out to bathe her and clean her cage and she seems to be sniffling. She also has what looks like a sore spot on one side of her nose and had a small amount of foam on her nose as well. I've never seen either of my hedgies do the anointing I've seen online and I've never seen her breathe this way either. Is she anointing? Is she sick? Please advise.

Ni that isn't anointing, the foam would be on h r mouth not nose. It's sounds like she could hav a URI or something going on with her sinuses. I would make a vet appointment to have her checked out.

When my hedgehog anoints he usually just foams at the mouth for a minute at most and then licks all over himself. It doesn't sound like anointing to me. Honestly I don't know what it is.
