Have her evaluated: Cough without fever could be many things. These include infections, inhaled foreign bodies, asthma and others. The way you sort it out is to have her examined & possibly some tests. There is no good effective treatment for simple cough at this age. The best way to deal with it is find out why it is there.

Nasal passages: I agree please see your PCP. The sweating may be related to her breathing difficulty. Remove nasal mucus with saline to improve nasal airflow. Continue to provide fluids and to monitor the temperature.
