Brief Answer: Please refer to the following answer. Detailed Answer: Hi, Having cold sweats is normal when getting over the flu. It will be over but needs time. If it will persist after a week, then, I'd strongly suggest to consult a physician. Meanwhile, I'd advise to: - have tea and other fluids (water) - take paracetamol - avoid taking fever drugs excessively - have light meals (especially soups) - get plenty of rest Wish fast recover!
