In brief: Wait

The zinc in coldeze may shorten the duration of a cold by a day or so.
Symptomatic treatment will make you feel better. Throat lozenges for sore throat, pseudephedrine for nasal congestion, Robitussin-DM for cough and tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain and discomfort when needed are what i recommend. There is no curative medical treatment but wait 7 days and it will be gone.
