Results from severe vasodilation of blood vessels as an idiosyncratic/exaggerated response to msg (everybody gets at least a little of that if the dose is high enough, some are very sensitive to even small amounts).

I finished Tamiflu today. I don’t have a fever but am sweaty and go from clammy to warm to the touch. My cough went from dry to wet. Am I contagious?
Possibly: Tamiflu does't "cure" infection. When used properly (it rarely is) it can shorten the duration of SYMPTOMS by about 18-24 hours.

Be kind to others around you and avoid touching objects that others use and catch your coughs and sneezes in something that you can throw away. Wash hands with soap. ...Read more
