Hi, Dr Ashori here, please give me a moment to reply.
You can take cough medication such as delsym or robitussin along with benadryl to help dry you out and decongest you.
What seems to work best is doing a sinus wash or sinus rise, basically using salt water to irrigate the virus and mucous out of your sinuses.
Advil or motrin has also been shown to help.
Zinc and Iron can help but aren't necessary.
More fruits/vegetables during a cold can help you recover much faster.
