Does resting when mildly ill shorten the illness? (conversely, does working extend the time with symptoms)? It seems I can always force myself to work when I have allergy symptoms, head cold, sinus infection, etc. But does it pay?

Mild viral illnesses come and go but a serious infection (pneumonia or kidney for example) requires rest.
