Wishing you a speedy recovery. That's OK as a written message on a card. Also 'Get well soon'.
Also 'I hope you feel better soon'.

A cough is a sharp, uncomfortable exhalation or a condition that results in frequent coughing. It's pronounced (in AmE) like the first syllable of coffee.

The simple past and past participle forms of "to catch" are caught, which rhymes with bought.

Caught and cough​ look similar but they are not related.

If you want to mention the illness, you could use something like I hope you get better from your cold soon.
