Why do i have persistent throat pain after fever ?

I m a 15 year old girl, I had a cold for a few days about two months ago and ever since then my voice lets out quite often for no reason. I am also in my school choir and I cannot sing at all because it hurts my throat to sing at any range. Does anyone have any idea whats going on?

Dear cortney
You are having laryngitis and more than medication vocal rest is called for. avoid cold things , have hot water and steam with euclyptus leaves.sucking of a small piece of licorice will give good relief.
