Last year, a cold was a trigger for flare. I was very much surprised when my GI had told me it is quite possible. I did not have any of cold remedies, that could trigger a flare. Anyhow, I was put on prednisone. A friend of mine, also with CD, says she can feel that weather is going to change by reaction and pain in her intestine (she had a resection of one part of small intenstine).
