In brief: Decongest

If you decongest your nasal passages, you can breathe through your nose and your cough should get better quickly.
Since oral decongestants may keep you awake, you can try a topical decongestant spray (just don't use it more than once a day and then not for many nights in a row). A recent study suggested that honey was as good if not better than cough medicines at relieving cough.
