Beating the Coachella Crud
Veterans of the Coachella music festival have come up with a few tips over the years to help protect attendees from the variety of illnesses dubbed the Coachella Crud:
Wear a bandana to cover your nose and mouth as you walk through the dusty field, especially when it's windy.
Take allergy medicine.
Drink plenty of water.
Take Emergen-C, Airborne or any variation of multi-vitamins to help bolster your immune system.
Shower every night after Coachella to get the dirt off.
Get some actual sleep while at Coachella.
Get even more sleep after you get back from Coachella.
Try using a Neti Pot or saline nasal sprays for your nose.
Take an extra day off work or school if you can to recover.
For the Coachella Comedown, blast your favorite Coachella tunes to re-live the best moments of the festival as you readjust to the daily grind of life.
