Self care for laryngitis
If your symptoms do not improve in a few days or they become more severe consult a doctor.
Medical treatment of Laryngitis
Laryngitis can vary in severity from mild to severe. Your doctor will examine you and recommend treatment based on the severity of symptoms. Most people can be treated at home with care and medications (such as fever reducing medicines, antibiotics). If the symptoms are bothersome you may be referred to an ear, nose, and throat specialist (otolaryngologist).
People with chronic laryngitis are advised to avoid smoking or excessive use of alcohol and get treatment for the underlying cause (such as postnasal drip or gastroesophageal reflux disorder). A person with severe laryngitis may be admitted to a hospital for treatment.
