My three year old daughter has had a persistent dry cough and minimal runny nose without a fever.

Possible allergies. If your daughter is having recurrent symptoms with out fevers and signs of acute infection she is most likely having recurrent allergic symptoms. I would rec using saline nose drops for nasal hygiene. Take some loratidine otc, and look for signs of improvement. If nothing changes in 3-4 weeks then talk to your pediatrician.

No. No need to be concerned, pertussis very unlikely at this age, your baby has still got passive immunity from you, reflux can cause the dry cough, try not to overfeed, prop your baby up or at least 30 degrees while feeding, raise the head of the bed, keep clearing the nose with saline, if no improvement check with your pediatrician.
Yes/no. The first months are troubled by narrow nasal passages & exposure to dust, fragrences, smoke & other irritants. Baby tries to flush these out of the nose with mucous but this often ends as congestion & produces rattling with breathing. The best rx is washing out the nose with saline & suctioning the remainder. Eliminate irritants from babies environment & this will happen less.
