It is a myth that bad weather and changing temperatures can cause a cold. Getting wet or getting cold does not seem to have an impact on the development of a cold. A cold is caused by a virus. If you have a reduced resistance, for example due to tiredness or a poor nutrition, you are particularly susceptible to a cold. Children get on average 8 times a year a cold, while adults only get one about 3 to 4 times.
Colds are harmless and usually disappear after 2 to 10 days. However this does not make them any less annoying. A stuffy nose, loss of appetite, coughing and breathing difficulties are just a few of the inconveniences associated with a cold.
