Can you get the flu or cold in cold weather? I have the flu but mom says don't go outside, you'll get more sick.

Influenza. This disease more commonly occurs during the winter months, but cold weather has no causative effect. It is doubtful that you will become increasingly sick, but best to stay at rest, drink lots of liquids and take otc meds to alleviate symptoms. Getting exposed to people with other infections is not a good idea. Hope you are better soon.
