Treatment with Vitamin C (Ascorbic acid tablets). Seems ineffective, and does not relief symptoms, according to a high quality study with 80 children. More research may be needed. Seems safe.

Additional Information

Vitamin C

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid and L-ascorbic acid, is a vitamin found in food and used as a dietary supplement. As a supplement it is used to treat and prevent scurvy. Evidence does not support use in the general population for the prevention of the common cold. It may be taken by mouth or by injection. It is generally well tolerated. Vitamin C was discovered in 1912, isolated in 1928, and first made in 1933. (source)
