    I have not been physically ill this year post-coachella, thankfully. Mentally is another story.

    Yes! The sniffles and a sore throat. They're usually gone in a couple days and I can't seem to shake them this year.

    Got sick after the first day. Runny nose and constant sneezing. Lungs were hurting come Saturday night and didn't bother going Sunday as was sick. Went to LA to do touristy stuff instead with the gf.

    that's a bummer man. dust gets to me and my bro so bad, and by the end of sunday it was ridiculous. we had to ditch our awesome spot before Snoop & Dre cause my brother couldn't breathe.

    hope LA treated y'all right!

    I would just like to take a moment to acknowledge your grasp of the English language. The rest of you monkeys can learn from this girl.

    Definitely some post-Coachella asthma/lung shittyness for me.

    If there's nothing wrong with you after Coachella, you didn't do it right.

    First Post Coachella cold ever. Nasty nasty cough coupled with a bruised rib. Not the happiest person on my block at the moment.

    Does anyone know how to avoid this? For me, the Coachella cold is pretty much inevitable, but I thought that maybe, just maybe I could beat it with a bunch of Emergen-C, vitamins, and hand sanitizer. I didn't get AS sick as I did last year, but a week after the fest, my voice is still cracking worse than a boy going through puberty.

    always important to wear some kind of face protection, whether it be a dust mask, bandanna, etc. you can't always see the dust, but it is there 24/7.

    Now I'm realizing why my asthma has been worse this week. Not horrible but noticeable.

    I did get a bottle of Arm & Hammer nasal wash, which I used every night after getting back to the hotel and it did clear out some of the dust from my sinuses. Next year, I'm wearing two bandanas over my face.

    So it's been a week since I got back and I'm still dealing with the lingering effects of the post Coachella cold. This might have been the worst I've had it in my four years of going, but I'd attribute that to the cooler night time temps during weekend one. Definitely giving the Neti Pot a try next year though.

    I'll put in another vote for neti pot/sinus rinse plan. I rinsed my sinuses every night after getting back to the condo and came out feeling well, even with all the dust and smoke. I managed the same thing last year even while camping (and had no post-Coachella cold then, either.)

    Though the electrolytes, vitamins, hand sanitizer are also good ideas. I'd also throw in making sure to eat healthy food, too.


    Also while I don't have a specifically post-Coachella cold going I did arrive back in NYC and am currently knocked back by allergies. First spring in the Northeast, woo!

    ^Sorry to hear that. My sister has pneumonia as well.

    I only saw that watering truck only once weekend 1, it made the rounds far fewer times this year, it seems. I know it was colder, but it was still dusty as ever, maybe even moreso.

    Thanks. It has been pretty miserable. I think the dust did me in, on top of it I have asthma so that always makes it worse.

    I don't know what I have but cough is still hanging on and still congested as all get out. I could go through a box of tissue in day!

    I rarely fall ill, but about three days after weekend 1, something hit. Finally broke up in my lungs this weekend, but I can barely talk although my throat is not sore. I thought it was from wearing my immune system down with not enough sleep and too much fun, but maybe there was something in that dust.

    SPORES!

    I'm so fucked up. By Saturday first weekend my voice was completely gone. Somehow brought it back to 50% for Sunday by a combo of tea and straight honey to my throat.

    Went back home for Monday-Wednesday, feeling pretty good. My gf tells me she's coming down with a cold on Thursday, and of course by Saturday second weekend I was sick with a whole new something. Terrible sinus pain and cough. Had an amazing time at Dre and Snoop on Sunday even though my body was screaming no.

    BLEHHHHHHH monday after day 6....... I feel fucking insane

    Sinus rinse & Mucinex D (they stuff you have to sign for at the pharmacy) are my best friends when I'm dealing with nasal & chest congestion. I'm sure someone else will recommend some natural stuff, but the D is my remedy of choice. It'll dry you out & help you cough out all the yuck in your chest.

    I have a Coachella ear infection, so I got some stuff for that. The doctor also gave me something for my congestion, and an inhaler for wheezy lung. This is the worst post-Coachella sickness I've had.
