Continue feeds: Monitor temperature and if her rectal temperature is 100.4 F or higher, please see your pediatrician for additional testing and evaluation. Nasal saline drops/coo air mist and gentle suction may be used to reduce post nasal drip and to open nasal passages. Infants breathe through their noses and congestion may result in distress. Please see your pediatrician.

Monitor and humidity: Without any fever, and everything else sounding as good as you describe, you really can just monitor the infant. Use a humidifier and use saline drops along with her bulb suction to clear out her nose. If she starts to run fever or starts not eating well, then baby needs evaluation. The vomiting likely related to the mucous drainage, and although it seems a lot, she is keeping down enough to pee

Possible/less likely: Allergies can cause these symptoms that you mentioned. But it could be chronic sinusitis. In that case, antibiotics or sometimes surgery can help. You should see an ear, nose, throat doctors first, and later also do an allergy testing to rule out allergies.

Possibly: Gabapentin may be associated with lowered potassium, but there are dozens of other meds also associated with potassium loss. What other meds are you taking? Where is the pain your are getting. Potassium can be very irritating to the stomach/esophagus if not taken with food or adequate fluids. Consult with your fp concerning this problem.

Do I have strep throat if I ran a low fever, have deep coughing, have runny nose, have red bumps at the back of my throat, and have throat pain?

Depends: Generally, the fevers with group a streptococcus infections are in the 101-102 degree range. If you do not have a fever, it seems unlikely, but you could still have an infection. Be seen and you can be tested.
