Question:
My wife and I are careful not to kiss when we have a cold, but can our colds be passed by other bodily contact, specifically intimacy?
KH
Answer:
Thank you for your question. The common cold is caused by a virus which infects the upper respiratory passages of nose and throat. It is shed from these areas as droplets and can infect other people in close contact for example when we sneeze or cough or share a crowded elevator space. Hope this helps.
