This sounds like a pretty typical respiratory infection. Not all respiratory infections require visible drainage. Often dogs will sneeze it up and swallow it which is illustrated by the licking you are describing. The hiding under the bed is very typical of a fever. Go ahead and stop the saline as this can be a little irritating. The human decongestant agents can also be hard on a dogs heart so I would stop that too. You should have your pooch seen by the vet, usually inexpensive antibiotics will get this problem under control quickly. As for whether or not something is snorted up the nose... almost always there is bloody sneezing associated with it so I doubt that is the case.

I hope this helps, best wishes.
