URI symptoms: With coughing and sneezing and low fever, it sounds like your child has an upper respiratory infection. This is usually viral and can often last 7-10 days. If he has any breathing difficulty, refuses to take fluids, spikes a fever over 101, or is not interactive when awake, he should be evaluated by your doctor or urgent care. Otherwise, give it a few days and encourage fluids.

Needs Doc visit: First, 99.3 is not a fever. Second, coughing and sneezing for one week in a 3 year is usually a virus that will resolve with no intervention. What concerns me is the lack of play, energy, and eating. I would recommend a doctor's evaluation for the lack of eating and decreased activity.
