I've been sickly with flu a few times, so this story really made me think.
Every year 700 extra influenza deaths in the US are caused by people popping pills to suppress their fever so they can carry on with things, according to a new study.
Although taking medication to reduce a fever might make you feel better, you can still infect others with flu. In fact it might even make you more infectious - eek!
Next time I'll be kind to my friends and colleagues and stay at home...
