Post viral symptoms : It is common to get post viral symptoms such as you described for up to 12 weeks after s viral infection. If your chest is clear and you are not producing phlegm then it is unlikely there is significant illness. Try some steam inhalation before bedtime or taking an antihistamine. It may help alleviate the symptoms
