Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have loss of voice. Well the symptoms you mention in query can occur due to certain reasons like viral infections , bacterial infection , exposure to harmful chemicals or allergens , acid reflux , frequent sinus infections , smoking or overusing. I would suggest you to consult ENT specialist for proper examination . Doctor may order CT scan , throat swab test , viral culture test or endoscopy . Doctor may prescribe antibiotics like amoxicillin or penicillin along with anti inflammatory . Doctor may also prescribe anti viral . For now do warm saline gargles and apply warm compresses externally on larynx .

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
