So I thought 2 of my 3 boys had a URI so I brought them to the vet and got meds. This hasn't done anything and now I notice they sneeze NON STOP when they free range...its distressing to see cuz I know its uncomfortable. My question is are they allergic to me? Something in the room? :cold_sweat: what can I do?

Did the vet confirm that they have URIs? They might need more / stronger antibiotics then.
Allergies do happen, but they are somewhat rare.
They could be irritated by something.
Do you wear perfume / hair spray / scented lotion / use body wash with a scent?
Do you have candles, incense, air fresheners, etc in the room?
Does someone smoke in the house?
Think about anything that smells at all around them, it could be irritating them. Also dusty things (or any kind of loose particle) can cause sneezing. What kind of bedding do they use? Do you have carpet in your room - if you do, do you vacuum regularly?
All things to think about that could affect sneezing.
You can also get a HEPA air purifier to keep in your room.
