What causes fever and cough?

my 11 monthold son was seen four weeks ago and had strep throat and a common cold well he has been out of antibiotics and at night he runs a fever at 100.3(axilary) and differs but never higher than that , he cant sleep at night because he coughs too much and makes his body jump. He has a rrunny nose and is really fussy but only at night why whats going on I know teething but it has to be something else to stop this fever and horrible cough

Hi,

This can not be attributed to teething, and suggests an ongoing respiratory infection. Kindly review with your pediatrician, as this might need antibiotics and bronchodilators after assessment.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
