Thanks for your query.

Dry cough with history of fever can be due to viral illness.I would ask you to take her to the pediatrician who can put her on symptomatic treatment.There are chances of her to get affected with cold, running nose and fever again with lower water for drinking, avoid cold food stuff and raw vegetables.

Giving steam inhalation with Eucalyptus can be helpful and relieve her of the symptoms temporarily.

Wish you good health.
