How can fever along with nasal congestion and headache be treated?

I am a 67 year old emale and have been ill for two days. I have glaucoma which is controlled very well. But, I have a mild fever, stuffy sinus, painful headache. Can I take regular plain Tylenol or what sort of over the counter pain relief should I take. I cannot leave home to get something right now as husband is a cardiac patient..quad bypass and he needs his rest. But we have a pretty good stock of pain relievers. I just have to be careful with my glaucoma. Thank you...
