    A 4-year-old girl who attends day care presents with rhinorrhea and a daytime cough that have been present for 12 days. She has not had fever, but her appetite is poor and her interest in activities is diminished. On physical examination, there is clear rhinorrhea present in the nasal passages. The remainder of the examination is unremarkable. Should she be treated with an antibiotic?
