I'm not a doctor but, you shouldn't have to worry about your germs you blow into the bag. Once you body successfully fights that particular strain of cold virus, you are immune. Now I wouldn't let someone else play your pipes...

Now, it may be uncomfortable playing, depending on how you feel. So a bit of rest off the pipes wouldn't be a bad thing.

However, it could be worse, my pipe major passed a kidney stone during a gig once...
