While many people use the term “laryngitis” to mean voice change or hoarseness, laryngitis is actually an inflammation (irritation and swelling) of the larynx.
• Symptoms include a hoarse, strained, and sometimes barely audible voice; soreness in the throat; chronic cough; and throat irritation.
• Diagnosis: Laryngitis is usually caused by a viral upper respiratory infection. It may also be caused by laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR), another infection, vocal abuse such as smoking or yelling, or inhaling noxious fumes. It is up to your doctor to determine the cause.
• Laryngitis may be acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term), and its treatment depends upon the type of laryngitis and its cause. Your symptoms can initially be treated with voice rest, conservative voice use, and general rest. Drinking water, using a humidifier at home, avoiding smoke, and limiting alcohol and caffeine intake may also be helpful. Throat lozenges may help, but mentholated cough drops or those with eucalyptus should be avoided as these can be extremely irritating to the vocal folds. Bacterial infections are generally treated with antibiotics.
• Once properly diagnosed, the prognosis for laryngitis is excellent.
Any “laryngitis” that lasts beyond two weeks, or fails to improve with antibiotics, should be evaluated by a physician, preferably one who can make a complete examination of the larynx and vocal folds.
Home remedies to soothe your vocal cords and sore throats
We’ve all experienced that all-too embarrassing moment when you’re speaking in front of an audience only to have your voice crack. According to Medical Daily, voice cracking is often a symptom of vocal cord strain. This can be caused by yelling, singing, or illness. Stress or anxiety and the consequent tensing of the larynx can also be the source of the problem.
Dr. Oz claims one of the most common causes of voice- and throat-related problems is acid reflux or heart burn. When stomach acid refluxes past the esophagus and into the throat, it can cause a burning sensation and lead to swelling in the throat. In addition to quitting smoking and cutting out caffeine, chocolate, and alcohol from your diet, as advised by Dr. Oz, there are a number of home remedies to treat voice cracking and similar throat-related problems. Here are a few of our favorites.
1. Elevator slides. In this vocal exercise from Singer’s Secret, make the sound “eeeeee” from a low to a high pitch and back down. Next, do the same exercise with an “aaaah” sound.
2. Tablespoon of honey. Raw honey can be soothing to the throat, while also providing an anti-microbial coating, says YogaWiz. This treatment is particularly effective if you suspect your voice cracking is a result of laryngitis, a common infection in singers.
3. Steam. Mother Nature Network recommends taking a hot shower with steam or filling a bowl with hot water and sitting with your head over the vapors. You may also benefit from using a humidifier in your home, as the extra moisture will help keep the vocal cords moisturized.
4. Gargle salt water. One-half teaspoon salt dissolved in warm (not hot!) water can do wonders for strained vocal cords, says Mother Nature Network.
5. Suck on ginger. The anti-inflammatory properties of ginger make it a wonderful treatment for laryngitis and other issues related to throat inflammation. Mother Nature Network recommends sucking on candied ginger or drinking a piping hot cup of fresh ginger tea.
6. Onion syrup. Bear with us. Style Craze says it works. Chop 3-4 medium sized onions in small pieces and simmer in four cups water until the mixture thickens into a syrup-like consistency. Mix five tablespoons onion syrup in a glass warm water with honey and lemon juice to taste. Drink to soothe the vocal cords and treat laryngitis.
7. Eucalyptus. This anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and anti-viral herb is incredibly cooling and soothing to an irritated throat. You can find lozenges made with eucalyptus or follow the advice of Style Craze and breathe in the steam from boiling water treated with a few drops eucalyptus oil. For best results, breath in eucalyptus steam for 10 minutes twice daily.
8. Chewing gum. Chewing gum increases mucus and spit and helps keep the throat moist, says University of Maryland Medical Center. Mint chewing gum may have the added benefit of creating a cooling sensation in the throat. Ascending the Vale Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)

Hi I’m Cari Cole. I’m a celebrity vocal coach and artist development expert. And I help artist find their voice, craft their music, and create successful music careers. I’ve worked with Donald Fagen from Steely Dan, Courtney Love from Hole, I’ve worked with the band Journey. I’m going to teach you how to be a better singer and performer
So over the years of training singers, I’ve become an somewhat of an expert, in particular with healing hoarse voices. So for instance I get a lot of referrals from doctors, from ENT voice doctors, to help singers sing more correctly. Often they’ve come to me and they’ve come into some kind of problem. So the first thing that I always do is talk about how the body is the instrument and how the vocal instrument is inside the body. So the state of the body to some degree determines the state of your voice. So if you’re not sleeping, if you’re living a rock star life style and staying up late at night, eating late at night and all these things make a difference in how the voice sounds. So we have to look at all these things when we’re healing a hoarse voice. Number one I would say go and get yourself a vocal coach. It’s important to learn how to sing correctly and you won’t have those problems. Really within a week or two, students I work with don’t have those problems. We can resolve them really quickly. Sometimes there are other systemic problems or medical problems that you may want to see an ENT for so it’s a little bit more than a day or two that hoarseness is sticking around go and see a professional voice doctor, an ENT. You could have reflux, you could have an allergy problem, there are all kinds of issues with what is causing that hoarseness. I would say the number one thing that causes hoarseness in dehydration. So, 99% of the time when a person has a hoarse voice they’re not drinking water. The other 1% of the time is if they’re having reflux and laryngeal reflux which we call if for singers is not something where acid is coming up, but as it is washing up unbeknownst to the person therefore we call it singer’s reflux or laryngeal reflux. So, if you feel dry all the time and you are constantly drinking water, it is a sign of having reflux so go and see your ENT and check that out as well. So the number one cause of hoarseness that comes from singing and not from reflux and not from dehydration is because you’re singing too much and the vocal muscles actually get pushed up in the throat and that causes hoarseness. So if you’re feeling hoarseness at the end of your gig, of if you’re feeling hoarseness in general after you sing, you want to pull the laryngeal muscles down, and you just do that gently. So you put your fingers kind of at the top of the throat and here’s the thyroid cartilage. Go google the thyroid cartilage online so that you can see what it looks like there it really covers about this territory and you want to put your fingers at the top and just begin a yawn and pull it down. So when you pull the larynx down, you pull it down gently, no yanking, but I would say to wrap up this section about having a hoarse voice is number one drink a lot of water, and number two be healthy, eat healthy, get lots of rest, and number three, a little massage in pulling the larynx down will help restore that voice right away.
