A simple yet heartfelt request
I'm sure it makes you feel very virtuous to come to work despite your disgustingly spluttery head cold, but if all you feel capable of doing is wandering into your colleagues' offices, plopping yourself down in their visitors chair and sharing how you feel you are "too ill to work" before making sure they know about all the work you have to do, then you're not working. Other people do not need to watch you splutter, or to be exposed to your germs, and no one thinks you're a hero for being here. PLEASE GO HOME!
