In brief: Continue to monitor

Symptoms less than a week without other problems.
The lungs make mucous to wrap around the irritant or infection to help it come out with cough. Drink lots of water-vaporizer at night. If not improved by a week or worsening symptoms especially late onset fever see an MD. http://www.webmd.com/lung/bacterial-or-viral-infections-of-the-respiratory-tract
