Rat sneezes

My rat has had a little sneeze for a while. Her lungs didn't sound too crackly and the vet sent her home with a dose of .25ml of baytril.

It's been about a week and she is still sneezing but I can't see any snot although it sounds like a wet sneeze.

I have tried changing her bedding from Aspen to paper bedding.

Could this be a cold that the Baytril can't touch, an allergy or something else.

I am broke at this particular moment from buying gifts for xmas but I can cut back some people's gifts if I need to although I don't want to.

Anything else you guys can think to try before going back?

does she sneeze all the time? is there discharge?

Rats normally sneeze when they're exploring new places.

It's changed into a snotty sneeze and it's not constant but it is often.
