    Yep thats your lot, you can also put vicks or olbas in hot water in a bowl, put a towel over your head over the bowl and inhale, or just use it on a tissue. No decongestants though or ibuprofen

    keep drinking loads of water as well, it will help shift the congestion. sleep at an angle if you can (practice for 3rd tri heartburn) as that will help the crap drain from your sinuses, too.

    Hold a hair dryer in front of your face on warm and try to breath deeply, I was doing this a few times a day and it seemed to really help, Dr Google told me it was hot enough to kill the common cold!
