    He may of chilled... keep a eye on him and a heat lamp… and dry him off…
    And right when they get out of the water they "sneeze" some but if its a lot as you say then keep him warm and dry for now… someone who can explain what to do better should be here to help soon…

    My duckling did that as well, but this morning she was fine and then this evening after she played in the tub she started with the runny nose again. I dried her off with a towel and then I also put her back under the heat lamp.
