Detailed Answer:
Thank you for trusting HealthcareMagic for your health concern

Huskiness of voice without any pain or irritation is likely due to vocal nodules. Vocal nodules are small benign growths on vocal cords.

Laryngoscopic evaluation is required to view the vocal cords and confirm the diagnosis.
Please be advised to follow up with your ENT specialist for confirmation of diagnosis and management.

Meanwhile, do not overuse your voice. Please speak in a normal voice and do not whisper. Whispering causes extra stress on vocal cords.
