When should you call in sick with cold and cough to work ?

Say if you feel pretty miserable but are able to hold it together without coughing and sneezing, should you go to work?

Hi Dear,
Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum
I believe that my patient should reach workplace as early as possible.Get a routine blood test done and in the mean time take a simple analgesic under medical supervision and take rest not more than 1 day. If it persists contact me, i think i have a good combination of medicines and therapies for you. Good Luck!!!!
