Cold viruses evolve so quickly that every year your immunity to last year virus is useless. Also note that the "people will stay clear of you if you do come in" behavior is older than offices: visible (and audible) symptoms make people avoid close contact with you, therefore it is advantageous for the virus to avoid causing them as long as possible. -- Hkmaly (talk) 13:50, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

I'm not familiar with the "skin crawling" symptom. Is that just a weird name for some other symptom? 14:25, 4 December 2015 (UTC) Gus

Skin crawling means (I think) you feel like you have ants crawling on your skin. I have felt that at times, however I didn't recognize the phrase right away - it took a bit of thinking (my first language is not English). 08:07, 9 December 2015 (UTC)
