Suggest the best treatment for dry cough during pregnancy

Hi, I am running my 6th week of pregnancy. I am having very severe dry cough since 5th week. Steam inhalation, hot water therapy etc isn t helping at all. Not able to sleep at nights. Can you please suggest anything to get rid of this irritating dry cough? Also is kanthil safe to be used?
