Suggest treatment for fever and cough in child

I have a 4 year old who has had a cough for going on 2 weeks. His ped has him on albuterol neb sol., prn. It is helping, however, he has had a low-grade fever with this for 3 days now. Tylenol does bring it down and keeps it down for a while. Should I be concerned with his fever lasting this long?

If require go for x-ray chest.
