Drink plenty of water.
Put hotpacks on your forehead.
Wear socks and wrap yourself with a thick blanket.
Damp yourself with warm water and change your clothes as you sweats a lot.

For common cold, which includes stuffy nose, sore throat, throat irritation, a colleague into me to marigold power vege juice. Take plenty of it when the throat or back of your nose starts acting up. For me, it works most of the time.
As for Vit C, I believe our body can absorb better when they come naturally, ie, mainly from fruit sources.

First of all PREVENTION is better than cure....try to take home-made food, avoid frizzy drinks, colored sweets/candies (artificial coloring) etc...

Once you hve cold/stuffy nose/cough wz phlegm : Boil 1/2 cup of water with crushed garlic, few crushed black pepper corns, 1/4 tsp, cumin seeds (and 2-3 drops of ghee, if U hve)....keep on sipping the lukewarm water few times a day. it helps to clear the phelgm.
For sore-throat : Gargle luke warm water 2-3 times a day mixed wz little salt (salt to taste, not too much)
For stuffy nose : Fermentation/steaming
