What causes low body temperature (95.3) when sick with the flu?

Sweating & inflammat: Both high body temp (fever) as well as low (hypothermia) are immune responses to an infection. IL-1, a key protein, causes sweating & a rise in body temp.

I've not heard that cooling affects nausea, but you might feel better overall. ...Read more
