If not tachypneic/increased work of breathing....URI...bye bye

What is the current practice and EBM when presented with a non toxic
looking infant male (4 months old) with temp 100.7 (no prior anti
pyretic given) and a cough of two days?without any other finding to
explain the fever.
Do you get a U/A and or urine culture ? or you call it a URI and kiss
the baby goodbye.
Will you change the practice if you see the baby in a non flu season ?
thanks
