Is there anything I can do to relieve a horrible cold at 24 weeks pregnant?

I have a runny and bunged up nose, nagging headache and a cough. I just took paracetamol for the headache but is there any thing else I can safely try to get some relief?

paracetamol, non medicated cough sweets, honey in it's own or in warm milk, sit with your head over a steaming basin of water, rest.

Colds during pregnancy are horrible. Get well soon.
