    Ok so I hate catching colds because I have a chroic inflammation nasal condition so I try my best to avoid them. My mum has had a cold for 5 days and we went to the cinema's today sat next to each other. She coughed and put her arm in front of her to protect the person next to her but that sent the cough my way and I could feel the cough on my face. Is it highly likely that I'l have a cold now after trying hard for 5 days not to get it?

    Keep your immune system healthy best you can.
    I've been coughed on and not caught anything.
    Just wait and see, it should manifest after 2 days.
