How to Treat Laryngitis ?

Medical Treatment:
Do the following things yourself to treat laryngitis:
  • Take plenty of fluids
  • Try to speak as little as you can
  • Do not speak loudly or whisper
  • Keep the air moist by putting out bowls of water or using a humidifier (central heating and air conditioning make the air dry)
  • Do not drink too much of alcohol or caffeine (it will cause dehydration)
  • Gargle with hot salty water - should not allow children to try this
  • Do not smoke
  • Do not spend time in smoky or dusty places
When to visit a GP :
  • It is very painful or hard to swallow
  • After 2 weeks, your symptoms do not improve
  • You keep getting laryngitis or voice problems
  • If your child has difficulty breathing, get an urgent GP appointment
