Thanks for using Healthcaremagic,
You have suffered swine flu recently and treatment was specific for swine flu and may be due to secondary infection was given antibiotic.
This is viral infection which can cause inflammation in respiratory tree including larynx.
I hope as you have recovered this will also improve with time take voice rest, warm saline gargles and good balanced diet with any vitamin supplements if given by your doctor.
In future take vaccine for flu.
Wish you speedy recovery.
Take care.
Good Luck.

mild coughing might be due to pharyngitis secondary to bacterial infectionover a viral one,if u still have high temperatures nd malaise continue antibiotics for another three days,you can use a cough suppressant syrup, to be able to cope with your present problem
