How long are you contageous with the common cold?
I have found references stating that you are most contageous the first three days, but are you still contageous after 8 days if you still have cough spasms.
This has been one of the most severe virulent cases of bronchitis that I have ever had. I feel much better now after 6 days, but still have some strong cough spasms producing mucus.
I am scheduled to care for 3 grandkids, ages 2, 4. & 7, this week starting at day 8 of this disease. Am I still contageous? Their mother is going into the hospital for a scheduled C-section. I am concerned for the mother and for the little ones, should any of them be hit as hard as I and my spouse have been hit this week.
