In brief: Sinusitis or ???

Certainly post-nasal drip could be responsible for her symptom of cough and even burning chest, but in the presence of fever it's important to get her evaluated as she could have something that's going to require antibiotics to get over (bronchitis, sinusitis, pneumonia.

Agree wih Dr. Gowans and suggest adding more fluids, humidity (vaporizer or humidifier) or showers to help patient be more comfortable until a visit with the pediatrician can occur. Tylenol as needed for fever above 100.4.
