In brief: Croup

An upper respiratory infection with runny nose and fever with swelling around her vocal cords from a virus can cause exactly what you describe.
When it causes a cough we call it croup. She may still develop a cough. If she has no trouble breathing and resolution of fever you are good. If any difficulty breathing, high fever or drooling she needs to be seen right away.
