See. For myself and my mom milk makes the muscous thicker and harder to move when we're sick. As it does for most people. However, for my dad it actually helps ease his stomach. My son hasn't ever had the flu, so I don't know what it would do for him if he did have it. However, he has had head colds and the milk didn't seem to do any damage. However, if he did have a stomach flu I would probably give him more water. Just to keep him naturally hydrated, so he can fight on getting the cold passed.
