I'd be concerned with the blankets that she is not getting enough light. I'd keep the blanket off during the day and turn the heat a bit higher instead.

She may be developing a respiratory infection. If the sneezing is progressing in frequency she needs to see a vet. URI's if left untreated turn to pneumonia quite quickly.

Dry skin at this time of year is quite common as our houses are dryer. Of course there is always the possibility of mites. Does she scratch? Some of them do go through a quilling at about a year old. If she is going for a vet visit for the sneezing and runny nose, the vet can check for mites while there. If she does happen to have mites, do not allow her to be treated with Ivermectin. See this thread about the dangers of Ivermectin. http://www.hedgehogcentral.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6 Revolution is safe for hedgehogs.
