Cough: Yes, it's RSV season which can cause thick mucous and can lead to wheezing, so even though no fever, should have their lungs checked out.

Watch closely: Clear discharge and no fever is a good sign that cautionary observation should be sufficient. Labored breathing, new fever, change in behavior or appetite, increase in fussiness or overall worsening should prompt a visit to the doctor.
