Virtual consultation: I would suggest a virtual consult with Healthtap or your PCP. You may need a course of antibiotics and your asthma may be uncontrolled. Monitor your temperature and report fever to your PCP. Consider COVID 19 and influenza screening. Avoid Motrin and use Tylenol instead, drink fluids and rest. If the cough is persistent, a chest image is indicated.
