I wouldn't. If it gets worse I would.

not enough information, really, but based off the no-fever thing I'd say it's unlikely you need anything more than a drink of water and a lozenge.

If you doctor's office or insurance company has a nurse line, you can always call them and ask, too.

If it gets worse or you get a fever, go in. Could just be a common cold. If it lasts more than 10 days, then I would definitely call the doc.

Sorry I haven't been able to sleep from coughing all night. My cough has been present for a little over a weak now. And my oldest dd just got diagnosed with strep throat. So I don't know. I drink plenty of water during the day it doesn't make a difference.
