Hello Mrs. Veranita,
Thank you for asking the HealthReplies.com Community
Flu, sneezing and coughing are symptoms of an infection in the respiratory tract either due to viruses or bacteria. This symptom is the body's mechanism for removing foreign objects that enter the respiratory tract. There are many reasons for a person to suffer from flu, sneezing and coughing, apart from infection it can also be caused by allergies and decreased immunity so that germs easily enter a person's body.
It is natural for someone to have these symptoms if it turns out that you also have the same disease, because this disease can be contagious, especially if the people around you are not fit. Transmission of this disease is through the air, so when you cough, sneeze, and have the flu, the germs will be in the air and can be inhaled by those around you.
But if you are not suffering from any illness or complaint then it is not your cause.
This is the information we can convey, thank you, hope it helps.
