Help! Asthma +

So I had my flu jab as recommended but unfortunately got the flu anyway. I have recently been diagnosed with asthma and it seems to be rather sensitive at the best of times but it really doesn't like the flu... I'm not sure what I can do or take!

Even more unfortunately, I suffer from Costochondritis as a result of my asthma and that has decided to flare too and I am unable to take Ibuprofen and am also allergic to codeine - so if anyone has any advice on this it'd be great!

(My GP is closed until Monday so over the counter or home remedies would be fab!)

I like a hot water bottle when my chest is sore. But if you are struggling you should phone 111 and get professional advice.
