I had rib pain due to excessive coughing. Majority of pain is gone after few days but some minor pain left. Does this indicate rib strain or fracture?

In brief: Muscle strain

Most likely a muscle strain.
Not anything to worry about from what you describe. Antiinflammatory medication could be helpful.
