Do make sure that you avoid consuming it when it is cold (from refrigeration) and sour.

welcome to you on this forum. you should avoid curd during cold and fever but can use butter milk restrcted to day only. Both posses cold taseer(natur),which may aggrevate cld and can use warm water and milk.

Although consumption of dairy products (buttermilk/curd) will help promote restful sleep, prevent breakdown of protein and provide vital nutrients to your body while you have fever.

Earlier it was believed they does cause an increase in mucous productions and secretions,if consumed in large quantities during cold. Latest studies have shown that probiotics (in form of curd/ buttermilk) also help the immune response by both preventing colds and flu and speeding recovery time.

So go head and consume but practice moderation!
