Is it normal to get two colds in a row?
I have asthma and I am 7 wks pregnant. Is it normal in the winter time to get two colds in a row? No negative remarks please this is a real question.

I agree with Emmabugg on this one. I have COPD with cronic bronchitis, emphysema, and asthma. I have a cold longer than anyone in my house and it comes right back. I usually have to go to the doctor to get medication 2 times when everyone else is better withing a few days. Maybe you should talk to you doctor since you are pregnant now. You should also use sanitizer alot when not able to wash your hands - like in a store, car, or other public places. And when I go to the doctors office I never touch the seat that i have to sit in while waiting and I use my own pen when signing in- there is sick people there so I just sit with my hands on my lap - i probably look stupid but I really don't care i just don't want to get sick.

I've seen it happen to me on a number of occasions. You can't catch the same cold twice if you have a properly functioning immune system, but you can certainly catch two colds back-to-back during the winter.

So yes, it's normal - but you do seem to be slightly unlucky.


emmabugg
its quite possible. having asthma makes you more likely to get a cold and when your immune system is weakend by one thing another thing can come right in. keep your immune system up with some orange juice everyday.

I have before. It's cold season, so dont be too surprised. If your concerned a visit to the doctor can do no harm.


DJ Kevin
, you could get 10 colds in a row, you just getting immune to each kind of bacteria


SmartyPants
I don't know about "normal", but it's certainly possible. Colds are caused by a virus, and if you're exposed to it, then you can catch it.

of course.

I get about 4 colds a year - because I have small children at home.
you probably have some young children also - do any of them go to day care? that's a guarantee for repeated colds in your family.

It's also fair to point out that pregnancy is an immunodeficient medical condtion - yes, that means that when you are pregnant you are immune compromised, and are more prone to infections.

nothing for you to worry about, nothing for you to do differently.
But if you're really serious about not getting colds, keep your children home - not in day care. Especially if you or your children have asthma, this is pretty important. If there is any feasible way to avoid day care, it will help a lot. (:-)


linlyons
you certainly can.

http://familydoctor.org/online/famdocen/home/common/infections/cold-flu/073.html

<<Viruses cause the common cold and the flu. Over 200 different viruses can cause colds. There are not as many viruses that cause the flu. That's why there's a shot for the flu and not for colds.>>

since each is different, you can have 2 or 3 or more at the same time, never mind in a row.
