No, a cold will not cause a kidney infection. Kidney infection, as you would know from experience, makes one quite ill and is caused by bacteria, or even an autoimmune process (but then it is not infection anymore). It is possible, that when one's immune system is down, one is more prone to develop all types of infections, but a kidney infection is not set off by a cold. Have a lovely day and I hope that you stay healthy.
