Dry cough for 2 days. This morning woke up with fever and worse cough. It's dry, slightly hacking/barky and hurts in my windpipe. What could it be?

URTI. Your symptoms suggest a upper resp tract infection. Viral. You may have laryngitis and some inflammation in your wind pipe. Given that would suggest seeing an MD. Other symptoms are ok with home remedy but not tracheal issues. Hope this helps.
