Thanks for your query.

Swelling in the vocal cords is usually seen due to over use of the cords.This will recover over time when given rest to the vocal cords.This involves not talking loud and not consuming cold foods.

Gargling with hypertonic antiseptic solutions like CHLORHEXIDINE twice daily after food will reduce the swelling (oedema) and help you recover soon.

I would still consider rest being very important in recovery of swollen vocal cords.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
