Keeping the incoming air warm is a good idea. I find that drinking plenty of liquids (especially hot tea) also helps.

Depending on how bad you have it, you may just want to ignore the problem. When it's cold, I frequently cough up white glop. The problem does not get worse from one year to the next, and it goes away when it's warm. I suspect this affects lots of people.
