Child has nasal congestion. Had fever. Will it clear up on its own?

My 3 yr old has had nasal congestion for 1 wk ( mucus is clear/Tried steam, benadryl , saline drops with no relief) On Day 1, Day 4 and Day 7 she had a fever up to 102 degrees between 9pm and 4am only (Used fever reducer) The rest of the time she has no fever or pains and only complains of a sicky nose and acts normally. Should I be worried or will this clear up on its own?
