What is the best thing to give to my preschooler to clear out congestion from his head?

My poor son wakes up crying because of headaches from all the congestion in his head. I'm sure the headaches are from his head congestion because I'm going through the same thing right now, and the only time we have headaches is after we've been lying down for awhile. I plan on calling his doctor as soon as they open.
