Get checked out: Coughs after a viral illness may last for weeks, but you need to get her checked out to make sure that it is nothing else. With the resurgence of things like whooping cough, coughs over a week to 10 days need to be checked. Use a humidifier, lots of fluid intake and aoid respiratory irritants like smoke. Also, get your thermometer checked - ? Reading low. Bumps may be result of infection.
