can a person get sick .. catch a cold from the cold weather??? many think that if you go outside in the cold without proper protection.. you will catch a cold. but I know that it is not the case. you can only catch it from another sick person. but what about ... I hear that the common cold has NO cure. so the virus is always in your body once you do catch it. so in theory.. if you are in the cold weather and your body temperature gets low.. then your immune systems is weak. then cant the dormant cold virus in your body get aggressive again? if this is possible, then did you not just get the cold from the weather?
