Despite the many claims, there is no treatment for the common cold that can actually shorten the disease's duration or prevent it. However, medications, fluids, and bed rest can help relieve symptoms. Chicken soup has long been touted as a great way to treat a cold. It can soothe a sore throat, help clear clogged passageways, and keep you hydrated.
