Natural sore throat remedies for a 14 month old?

My lo is 14 months old and has had a runny nose for a few days. I thought it was either teething or allergies, but it's becoming more yellow/greenish. No fever, though, and he's acting fine except that the congestion makes it harder for him to sleep. 

Today he started coughing a bit, and he acts like it really hurts when he does. He doesn't cough a lot at once, so I think it's probably drainage from his nose causing it. Any suggestions to help ease his symptoms. I've tried a humidifier, warm shower, and a natural baby chest rub, but nothing seems to help much. The sore throat is what I'm most concernd about because it seems to bother him the most.

Some warm tea in a sippy and maybe some raw honey

This. I'd add some fresh lemon juice to the tea too.

my DS loved orange tea with honey when he was little. It's good hot or cold.
