yes, that's the way a cold is spread

The simple answer is YES you can catch it. But if you take precautions you don't have to worry about it.

Yes, you could get it. Hand-washing helps prevention. Also, do not touch your nose if you have just been in contact with a cold patient.

yes, my husband came home with a cold 4 days ago. I have it now and his is getting better. At least he has learned to share...lol

The common cold is the most contagious disease. Why is this so? It is a virus that causes it and not bacteria. A virus is smaller than a bacteria thus it can penetrate more and spread faster. Small doses of virus (1-30 virus particles) when introduced into the nose are sufficient to reliably produce infection. From the time a cold virus enters the nose, it takes 8-12 hours for the viral reproductive cycle to be completed and for new cold virus to be released in nasal secretions. This interval is called the incubation period.

Cold symptoms can also begin shortly after virus is first produced in the nose (10-12 hours). (13) The time from the beginning of the infection to the peak of symptoms is typically 36-72 hours.

Yes you can catch her cold, those viruses spread very easliy!!!!!!

Yep. In fact, colds and flu are very contagious. The reason there are more colds and flus transmitted in the winter is not because of the decrease temperature. It's because more people congregate indoors breathing, hacking, sneezing and coughing all over each other. Snotting kids are a good source of germs.

Use good health practices. Make sure you are eating healthy, get plenty of sleep, and take a Multivitamin with vitamin C. Studies are shaky on if that helps but it couldn't hurt. Most importantly, wash your hands frequently. Just plain soap and water works great. In a pinch you can use the waterless sanitizers as they can be carried in a purse or kept in a drawer when soap and water are not about.
