What causes losing voice frequently?

My 5 1/2 month old baby boy has acid reflux but also keeps scratching at his chest and throat. He loses his voice frequently. He s had an xray of his esophogus, stomach and small intestines and all are normal. What could be causing his difficulty in getting out sounds. JC

Hi,

By what you say the possibilities could be:

1. Laryngitis caused due to micro aspiration of acid reflex

2. Congenital laryngomalacia

I am saying if the kid is active you need not worry about this at all.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sumanth
