In brief: Not much...

Cough and cold medications are no longer available for children under the age of 4 yrs.
Most were not very helpful anyways. For kids over 1 yr old, a spoonful of honey works well to quell the tickle in your throat effect of a cold. Hot steam, like sitting in a shower, can get snot to drain out and thus decrease coughing. If severe, or there is difficulty breathing, consult your doc asap.
