Voice going high pitch, cracky sound, nausea, irritable headache, night sweats. Treatment?

Hi, i'm a 18 year old female. Three days ago my voice started going high pitch and cracky sounding, i sound raspy and its hard for me to talk without putting a lot of effort. I haven't had my normal voice for 4 days now and cough&cold medicine doesn't seem to be working. My throat doesn't hurt at all and I do have a cough that has progressed since the 3rd day. I've been feeling nauseous and have been having irritable headaches. Also whenever I sleep I have heavy night sweats which is very uncommon for me. What could be wrong?

You seem to have inflammation of you voice box and wind pipe. The treatment is: Voice rest, Steam inhalation, Mucolytics, Proton pump inhibitors. If things do not improve, take oral steroids for 3 days in tapering dose along with a short course of antibiotics. Do not try hard to speak. Regards.
