Cold vs allergy: If it is just sneezing and runny nose it maybe an allergy problem. Btw a cold is caused by a virus. Many people believe they get alot of colds when actually they may be suffering from allergies. If it is a cold/virus you are already exposed. Always check with your ob/gyn but try treating your husband for allergy.

No: Not unless you are having symptoms. If you are really concerned, you can ask him to sleep in a different room...Or you can. Make sure you have all your vaccines, as well.
