ratings and reviews)
Hoarseness is just a disorder in the vocal cords. This condition can suddenly occur making the person unable to speak properly and finding it difficult to swallow also. The most common underlying reason for Hoarseness is some form of infection on the upper respiratory tract. This can happen due to smoking or drinking any unhygienic drink or through even a common cough. There can be other different causes also.
HOW IS HOARSENESS DIAGNOSED?
The treatment for hoarseness depends on the underlying cause, for example:
• Acute laryngitis caused by an upper respiratory tract infection will usually improve on its own as the infection clears the body. Conservative treatment with cough suppressants and humidified air can be helpful.
• Voice rest is also recommended in order to avoid further irritation or injury to the vocal cords.
• Medications for gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) or allergies can treat hoarseness if either of these is found to be the underlying cause.
• In some instances, surgery may be necessary for benign nodules or polyps, trauma to the larynx/vocal cords and for cancer of the larynx
HOW IS HOARSENESS TREATED?
