H​ow long is a while? Normally a cold or upper respiratory tract infection resolves in 7-10 days. If it has been going on for a month for example, he may have an infected tooth root causing his sneezing and congestion.

T​o help with the sneezing you may use human Benadryl by mouth. try 1/4-1/2 of a human 25 mg Benadryl tablet every 12 hours as needed.

T​hey eat and drink fine with a tooth root infection normally. It is just one tooth so they can chew on the other side of the mouth

The infection is under the gumline so you would not see it.

You can also try human nasal saline drops. 1 drop in each nostril twice a day. That helps with the nasal congestion and helps soothe his nasal passages if they are irritated.
