Thanks for the query.
Drink hot beverages, chew lozenges like halls/ vicks etc and try cough syrup like honitus twice a day. Also my suggestion is to get examined by local doctor who may give you a short course of antibiotics. You should also take steam inhalation at least thrice a day. Avoid cold water and drinks and spicy meal which can irritate throat. Cough in my opinion will not hurt the baby.

Best wishes
