Is it possible to catch a cold from getting wet?
My 12 year old daughter likes nothing better than getting caught in the rain, and sometimes deliberately leaves her umbrella behind even when rain is likely.
I have always told her that as long as she gets dry fairly promptly afterwards (and she has never got absolutely soaked) she will come to no harm. But other people are continually telling her that she will catch a cold from getting wet.

you are all right that you cant catch cold from being wet or being cold, although this doesn't help your immune system. You do catch cold though by air born particles but not in cold air though, the cold germs survive in warm conditions funny as it seems as we all get cold in winter and not summer but for the cold germs to survive they need to be in a warm environment i.e a warm house with heating on and no open windows etc we get cold in winter as we are all more close together shut in a warm cosy house, in summer although it is right temp for the germs we have are windows open and are outside in the fresh air, also we make ourselves and our houses cool hence why we dont normally get cold in summer.

You cannot catch the cold from being wet, though the cold breeds better in cold weather (could be why it's called a "cold"). Though you can get a chill (and in the most serious cases hypothermia or pneumonia) from being wet.as even a slight breeze can cool the water dramatically.

A common misconception about the cold is that it is caused by cold weather or cold water this is not true. A cold is caused by airborne germs that are inhaled in cold weather so you can also get a cold in the summer but that is very rare. If the water is cold then you could get a very minor case of hypothermia but that is if her clothes are soaked with cold water. So it's fine if she plays in the rain as long as it's not too cold outside.

Being wet/cold does not cause a cold, contrary to popular belief. The cold virus breeds better in a colder environment thus this is why you are more likely to catch one when cold.
