Hello, I went through your query, it is the common question asked by many parents, and even adults too, while taking headbath is not a problem in older kids or adults when they have cold. But for infants (less than one year babies), in any infection instead of getting fever they react with hyperthermia (low body temperature), in that case bathing may be harmful. Please consult a pediatrician to make sure baby as only mild infection.
