Can the cavies get illergic reactions such as sneezing because of the bedding? I had this problem before, but then we switched bedding and Sammy was fine is this unusual?

Some pigs will sneeze more with certain types of bedding than others. If the bedding materials have a lot of dust in them they can cause the pigs to sneeze more. Try to find the least dustiest material you can for bedding. I noticed you told someone to bed a pig on sand in another thread. Sand is NOT safe for guinea pigs to bed on so please don't use that.

My one piggies used to sneeze alot when I used any type of wood shavings, but now with fleece or hay she doesnt sneeze at all.

I agree about the sand, not a good idea at all. Sand sticks to everything and that means food, water etc and that would not be to good for them to ingest over time.
