Unhappy Sneezing and sniffling.

Hello. I just got my first hedgehog almost 2 weeks ago. The first couple of days he was fine but all of a sudden he started sniffling a lot and his breathing is loud and it seems like he sneezes a lot. He eats and drinks normally and is very active when ever hes awake. He does seem to like his nose a lot and comes times he itches himself. Ive been cleaning his wheel with baby wipes and he drinks his water out of a water bowl maybe those things have to do with it. IM not sure if it could be something bad. Help please

It sounds like he might have a URI, which means he needs to go to the vet to get looked at. URIs won't go away without medication, and they can quickly turn into pneumonia, which can kill your hedgie.
