I would not medicate to reduce the fever, since its presence is to cook out the bad stuff and make it go away.  How deep is the cough?  Wheezy or just in the throat?

How many days has your 5 yr old had a low grade fever?
I would ask your pharmacist . Also if the fever doesnt go away in a day or 2 I would make a Dr appt for your 5 yr old. Could be ear infection or it could just be a cold.
Without the fever I would say it could be allergies but with fever I am not sure.
My 8 yr old has severe allergies and dr. recommended Claritan chewable s
But you have to take it everyday I give it at night before bed it last 24 hours and you cant skip a day as it takes a day or two to start working but it does work.
good Luck and keep us posted
