Another option: Coughing with chest wall pain is commonly due to Musculoskeletal pain. Apply local heat to the rib cage and use Motrin to control the pain. She will need a D Dimer test and evaluation of her knee, cough and sore throat. The latter two symptoms may be due to a viral illness. Monitor her temperature, rest and fluids are suggested. Please see Pediatric urgent care or the Emergency room.
