Unhappy Respitory infection... Help!!!

My baby ball seems to have a respitory infection and because I am fairly new at this I could use a little help. My room mate turned on the a/c and misplaced the heat lamps causing the temps to drop to around 65 degrees. He has not vomited but he is wheezing a bit and the bubbles around his mouth are present. I raised the aquarium tempature to around 98 degrees hoping this would help him fight off the infection. The mucious seems to be more like a bugger now if you know what I mean, it is hardening. Is this a good sign, also his eyes are discolored however I believe he is about ready to shead. He doesnt seem very fond of the tempature so hes been basking in his water bowl, should I remove this or leave it to help him regulate his body temp. Any advise or suggestions would be much apprechaited.
