Sounds like it could be an RI. I suggest examining the inside of its mouth. If you are seeing a lot of mucus, it is time for a good vet. If you are not seeing mucus, then I would continue to monitor closely until it sheds. Once it sheds, if the "sneezing" continues, it is vet time.

Couple things to consider. I would not spray constantly even in shed. If your setup has that much of an issue maintaining the humidity, change your setup. You also seem to be "all over the place" in terms of temps. 85-92 seems a bit high but it will be difficult to control temps in a room that drops to 64, and winter isn't even here yet. I suggest moving it to a more stable room of the house.

If it is an RI, a vet trip is only the first response. RI's are a strong indicator that you are having problems with husbandry so consider making improvements.

Good luck.
