In brief: NONE

Assuming you have a virus, ignore all the noise from people trying to sell you things for this.
Soup and other liquids may feel good in your throat. Nose spray can open your nose if severely stuffed. Antibiotics, vitamins, and herbs are all useless for this. Do not smoke. For severe cough there is albuteral inhaler. The less they know, the louder some people crow on this subject.
