If they are licking their nose often it could be a sign of a URI. Some of the symptoms Ive seen on here from other members is licking their nose in the beginning to bubbles coming out of their nose on the severe side. If its a normal amount of nose licking that she has done her whole life it may not be a big deal but if it seems to be a recent thing it could be a URI and you'd want to get her checked as soon as possible because it can set into pnemonia quickly.

Hopefully someone will come along that has had a hedgie go through URI process at the vets office. Just from memory from researching though I think they check the hedgie over then swab their nose with a qtip and start a culture with it. I think they will also prescribe antibiotics to give them. I don't remember hearing anything done for that kinda visit that would be invasive in anyway.
