No specific treatment exists. Antipyretics and analgesics may relieve fever or sore throat. Nasal obstruction may improve with nasal decongestants. Topical nasal decongestants are more effective than oral decongestants, but the use of topical drugs for > 3 to 5 days may result in rebound congestion. Rhinorrhea may improve with 1st-generation antihistamines (eg, chlorpheniramine) or intranasal ipratropium bromide (2 sprays of a 0.03% solution bid or tid)

Zinc, echinacea, and vitamin C have all been evaluated as common cold therapies but none have been clearly demonstrated to be beneficial.
