Réchauffer (après attraper froid)


Senior Member
English - British
A friend has written the following sentence to me in an email -
"le vin blanc n'a pas suffit pour me réchauffer"
However, she was previously referring to a cold (illness) which she had caught. I am aware of the standard translations of "réchauffer" (i.e. to reheat etc), but can it also refer directly to a cold in terms of recovering from a cold?
Or was she simply referring just to the fact that she was chilly whilst drinking her wine?
