My general rule is the neck check.
If the symptoms are above the neck line (light sore throat, sneezing, stuffy nose, etc.) I'll do light cardio. If after 5-10 minutes you start clearing up you can keep going. If your head starts pounding give it up.
If the symptoms are below the neck (coughing, chest congestion, puking, etc.) then no exercise and recuperate.
I've read a couple in a couple different articles that light cardio may stimulate your immune system but we're talking a light workout.
