Welcome to HCM,
It seems that due to cold and infection there might be swelling on vocal cords giving rise to hoarseness of voice.
Go for antibiotic and decongestant medicines after consulting your doctor.
Do warm water, listerine gargles.
Do vicks vapor inhalation.
Give complete rest to vocal cord.
Ok and bye.
