What causes fever and constant cough with redness and watering of the eyes?

Hi My 8 year old daughter has a temp of 38.5. Panadol will bring it down but then it just goes back up again. She has a constant cough, red watery eyes and generally doesn t feel or look well. She also doesn t have much of an appetiete. My 5 year old son has had croup but i have questioned that maybe it is whooping cough. Thankyou
