sick 8 month old

My son is 8 months old and he has his first cold. His nose is very runny (worse at night while he sleeps) and sometimes his snot has a little blood in it. Since he's been sick, he wails almost every time I put him down. He hasn't been sleeping through the night either. He used to sleep from 9 or 10 until 8 in the morning and only woke up once around 2 or 3. But for the past two months he's been waking up every two hours and won't go back to sleep unless I bring him into my bed and cuddle him. Also he's teething (4 on the top). Does anyone have any advice about any of these issues? Please and thank you

Get a humidifier for his room. Keep his nose clean as much as possible and put vaseline/vitamin E oil on it to keep it from getting red and sore. Take him in the bathroom when someone showers.
Don't let him sleep in your room unless you plan to keep him there, this is one of the ways it always starts.
