Unhappy sneezing and licking nose?

hi everyone! So I got my darling little hedgie on monday, and shes been so sweet. She let me bathe her with no issues (just a foot bath) and I was very careful not to startle her and make her huff in the water. At one point she almost climbed out of my sink, so I picked her up and placed her back in. Her face went in and me being the paranoid new hedgie mama that I am, I quickly took her out.
She sneezed about five times and then was licking her nose much more than usual. I'm very worried about a possible URI, but are the symptoms evident that early ? Thanks!

If it was directly after, she was probably just clearing her nose. Keep an eye on her for the next few days and see if notice any increased sneezing or nose-licking in her day-to-day activities and behavior. If you do, then I'd get her in to the vet to check for a URI.
