Suggest Treatment For Dry Cough
Thank you for trusting HCM
Dry cough along with hoarse voice is suggestive of Acute Laryngitis, which is usually caused by viral infection. Symptoms usually subside in 10-12 days.
You can try the following measures for symptom relief
-Please be advised to follow voice rest. Do not talk too much or talk very loudly. Please be careful not to whisper. Whispering can put extra strain on vocal cords.
-Warm saline gargle three times daily
-Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated
-You can take Tylenol if pain develops
-If you have associated allergy symptoms like sneezing, runny nose etc, use cetirizine 10 mg once daily.
-Avoid smoking, if you do so
If the symptoms do not decrease in next 3 days, follow up with an ENT specialist to rule out possible bacterial infection and initiation of antibiotics if needed.
