Steam inhalation for cold

Hello doctor, since last week i  was coughing, sneezing, and suffering from other provoking cold symptoms including severe bronchial asthma. No blocked nose. Tried paracetamol tablets but doesn't work. Found some respite by steam inhalation. Is it safe? Will it trigger my Asthma? Is paracetamol safe? Thank you.
