Brief Answer: Please refer to the following suggestions... Detailed Answer: Hi, Your symptoms refer to laryngitis, inflammation of larynx (the voice box). It might require some time to recover. I'd advise to: - keep good hygiene of the throat - use air humidifiers - avoid smoking - try to talk less to avoid further irritation - drink plenty of water - I usually recommend tea to my patients (particularly linden tea) - I also recommend warm water gargar to soothe throat, honey and olive oil. If no improvement within another week, I'd advise to consult an ENT specialist. Hope it answered to your inquiries! If you have more questions, feel free to ask them while follow up. I'd be happy to assist you further. Dr.Sejdini
