I know cold weather/ wet weather doesn't cause cold or flu, but what if your child is already sick? Does playing outside in cold/ wet weather cause a mild cold to turn into something worse?
The sun came out today and so I bundled the boys up and let them outside. Both have mild colds (no fever, no lethargy, good appetite, etc). Then, being Oregon, in a flash it started raining (torrential downpour)! They were having so much fun, I didn't make them come inside. Instead they played for almost 2 hours in the rain (with intermittent sun breaks in between).
Brought them in, gave them a nice hot bath, warm jammies... Now I'm questioning my judgement a little...
Google is no help.
What do you all think?
