Hello dear user of HCM!
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us!

I'm sorry for the situation you are going through. I'll try to give my help as much as possible.
It seems you have an upper respiratory tract infection. Having cough, and voice changes indicates that you larynx is under inflammation too.

If you have other symptoms like high temperature, pain in chest or back under the shoulder blades, weakness, muscles ache, and similar to these, you have to start as soon as possible an antibiotic cure, to treat the infection and prevent complications.

I would recommend you azithromycin once daily, Ibuprofen for the fevers if you have, for the pain and inflammation, vitamin c to help you recover quicker.
Have a balanced diet, and drink a lot of liquids to keep your body hydrated and ease the healing.

If things are getting worse and you don't see any improvement please consult your doctor in your healthcare center, to see if you have any severe cold or pneumonia.

I hope you will be fine soon.
I wish you all the best!
