Our expert says:
Being cold or wet or after a walk in the rain, will not effect your immune system. The reason why you are more susceptible to catch a cold or flu after walking in the rain etc., is that inhaling the cold air causes vasoconstriction of the blood vessels in the nose and sinusses. This causes you to be more likely to catch a viral upper respiratory tract infection.
