You work in cubicle land.  Your coworker has a loud, persistent cough (think bronchitis-like).  You know your coworker has been to the doctor and is not contagious.  Would you ask that your coworker be moved until she was well?

I udnerstand where you're coming from, but that's a total male private part move.

I wouldn't. It's not like she can help it.

No, they'll get better soon anyway. It's not like it's permanent. Plus, that would be really mean.
Did this happen to you? :'(

Yup! but if they move me, I get an office with a door for a few days.  This excites me.

Oh my god, I would heart that so much.

Oooh a door! Maybe you can pretend to have the cough for the rest of the time you're working there. :D

Oh...my...God! When I saw this thread I thought you must work in my office!

We had this girl who had a hacking cough that was due to post-nasal drip and never goes away. She has been moved three times. And yes, in both cases people requested that she be moved. But then again people in my office are kind of confrontational pr!cks...
