I recently came down with a cold (common cold) and did not know that it could spread to guinea pigs. I held my guinea pig, cuddles, and kissed her on the nose (quite a bit). I don't want her to get sick, she takes vitamin C pellets about every day so those should help. I just don't want her to die or be sick, please give me any advice on how to prevent sickness or help her if she is sick. Both her and I are counting on you.

From what I have read I think it is unlikely that your guineapig will catch your cold. In the future when you are unwell be careful with your hygiene to minimise risk but as most viruses don't transfer from humans to Guinea pigs I would try not to worry.
