Laryngitis allergies

Common Questions and Answers about Laryngitis allergies


Avatar n tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Your symptoms could be due to Vocal abuse, which is due to excessive talking, throat clearing, coughing, inhaling irritants, smoking, screaming, or yelling. Vocal misuse is improper voice usage such as speaking too loudly or at an abnormally high or low pitch. Frequent vocal abuse can cause temporary or permanent changes in vocal function, voice quality, and possible loss of voice. This can be diagnosed by a throat examination.
Avatar n tn I am an elementary school teacher. This year I have had laryngitis/hoarseness for 5 months. I had often lost my voice each spring for years, but never for this long.It has gotten a little better now that I am on vacation. I went to an ENT. He said I had a spot of redness on the back side of my throat. He put my on acid reflux meds, it didn't seem to help. I also tried allergy medicine and a steroid pack, it didn't seem to make a difference.
Avatar f tn I have had laryngitis and hoarseness, which is getting worse now. In my 6th wk of treatment and wondering if anyone else has had this problem. Have had in the past, never this bad. Any thoughts would be appreiciated. Other then normal allergies, and some fatigue, no other changes. Could my liver have an effect on my vocal cords, throat,, etc.?
Avatar f tn I tend to get a minor cold three or four times a year. About three or four days later I will develop bronchitis, followed by a laryngitis and perhaps a minor sore throat. I will have coughing spasms in which I gag and cough for several minutes, at times spitting up yellow mucus. Incontinence is common during these coughing spells. I have no trouble breathing; I am a non-smoker. But the major symptom is extreme fatigue.
Avatar m tn Acute laryngitis caused by allergies, viral infection, chronic laryngitis and laryngoesophageal reflux all can cause hoarseness and voice difficulties. Rare but serious causes producing these symptoms are vocal cord paralysis and vocal cord tumours.Please see your Otolaryngologist (Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor) for an evaluation. A detailed clinical examination and tests can help in determining the cause. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. Hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar f tn More plausible causes of hoarseness of voice need to be checked like acute laryngitis, vocal cord nodules, allergies, gastro esophageal reflux, smoking, thyroid problems, trauma to larynx, parkinson’s disease and trauma to larynx. Consult an otolaryngologist who will evaluate the causes and treat likewise. Cough suppressants for laryngitis, treat GERD, stop smoking, vocal rest etc will make a difference. Hope this information helps you. Take care.
Avatar f tn I tried an antihistamine and didn't matter. I thought of strep but since she had no other indicators and is continuing extracurricular activities without complaint I figured wasn't strep. Not really sure.
Avatar n tn i was given penicillin for my sore throat this last one and Loratadine. The doctor told me I might have allergies and the nasal drip was causing irritation in my throat. It has been a week since then. now i'm experiencing dryness in my throat and a few days ago I started feeling dry throat sometimes but it would go away but now my throat is really dry and it bothers for 3 days now. It makes my voice kind of hoarse.. I've never been sick this much this often in my life.
Avatar f tn Hello, The symptoms that you are having can be due to laryngitis. It causes hoarse voice or the complete loss of the voice because of irritation to the vocal folds (vocal cords).Mostly it occurs due to a bacterial or viral infection,but it can be due to allergies like air or food allergies also.I would suggest you to stop taking the peach tea if it is causing such symptoms. If the symptoms persist then pls get it evaluated from an ENT specialist. Hope it helps.
Avatar m tn I experienced congestion, cough, and laryngitis a day or two after exposure to large amounts of hay and agricultural lime. Taking this into consideration, I'm a bit skeptical as to whether or not it was a cold or just an alergic reaction. The symptoms have drastically decreased. My nose is still half-way stuffy, and I'm still spitting up white phlegm, but it's more of an annoyance now than anything else. Some people I've talked to think that it's post-nasal drip.
Avatar n tn I had a cold or virus, including laryngitis, followed by being out of breath and having an aching chest when I try to read to my children at bed. I get a slight fever (under 100) every afternoon for several weeks now and cannot walk across the room without getting out of breath. I am a runner, never smoked at all, and normally very fit. At first they said it was allergies and put me on advair, then when I got worse, said it was bronchitis and gave me antibiotics and an albuterol inhaler.
Avatar n tn I am 19 years old, I have asthma and allergies. About a week ago, I started loosing my voice and was tired all the time. So went to the doctor two days later, told them I thought I had laryngitis becasue I could not speak, was tired, had a runny nose, and it was very difficult for me to swallow, but no fever and no coughing.
Avatar m tn I just recently had Laryngitis, and now my ears feel as if they have lost pressure, i can hear ok, I know that if you close your mouth and plug who your nose and push, the ears will "pop" well there not doing that, they pop on there own soon enough, but is there any need for ear tubes, because I had many ear infections when I was younger, and the Docs placed tubes in my ears to regain pressure, is there any need for that now, my ears dont hurt, im just asking is there a need too?
Avatar m tn At the same time, I developed laryngitis, an ear ache and sinusitis, which started on the operated side and progressed to encompass my whole head. Pain was more pronounced on the operation side feeling like eye strain emanating from the socket, with an occasional fleeting sharp pain which has slowly reduced. My ENT did a thorough exam and ended up doing a CT and found no infection and ruled out allergies or a cold.
1472764 tn?1287591786 I will be six weeks tomorrow. My allergies started acting up yesterday when I got into some dust. I've been running a low grade temp since then of around 99.2. I take zyrtec at night and flonase nasal spray. I use a nettie pot nasal wash also. Any suggestions on how to kick this?
Avatar f tn It all started a few weeks back with laryngitis and post nasal drip. I started to get my voice back and then I got a severe sore throat and it hurt to swallow and felt like my throat was swollen and it also felt like I had blisters on the back of my throat. My doctor told me to take regular mucinex to help with the pnd and to call back if it didn't get any better. After that was when my throat started hurting really bad. I've had a sore throat for almost 3 weeks now, and the severity fluxuates.
Avatar f tn I've had a dry cough and periodic chest rash on and off for 6 months now. The rash will clear up as long as I am on Antiobotics. The rash is on the center on the chest area right below the collar bone. I have been to the Dr. 5 to 6 times since January. I have been on steriods 2 or 3 times and antiobotics 4 to 5 times. I have taken AM & PM allergies medication giving to me by perscription.I have taken cough medication in PM.
Avatar n tn It results in prolific green mucous coming from my nose and chest that lasts for several days and sometimes laryngitis. My doctors always assume I'm a smoker (I'm not). It takes about two weeks to start to feel good again, only to have the symptoms reappear and the cycle starts all over again. This has been ongoing for the past 4 years.
Avatar f tn Then I had a persisitant cough and laryngitis for months and finally went to an ENT. Ulcers on vocal cords. Treatment. Got better but still had persistant cough. (Coughing so hard I gag and throwup. Many visits and medicines later still coughing. I have also used asthma medications for wheezing. In November of 2011 I had to go to the ER with tightening in my upper chest. After xrays and treatment felt some better. The next day it happened again.
Avatar f tn ugh! Im sorry to here you are feeling so sick. I'm not a medical doctor but here is my opinion on some of things things you mentioned you could possibly have: pneumonia: its possible, but pneumonia is relatively uncommon influenza (flu) - unlikely. You would have rapid onset of symptoms w/ high grade fever common cold - definitely possible bronchitis - not sure emphysema - not sure asthma - this would be secondary to a primary illness.
Avatar n tn Hi! Have you ever been evaluated for allergies? Folks who have allergies tend to have more frequent sinus infections due to the "soup" constantly brewing which infections LOVE to breed in. I would suggest you ask to see a doctor and ask the doctor to help you clear any current infection you have, as well as evaluation for allergies. The student health center might also be able to help you. Good luck!
Avatar m tn I seem to have a recurring sinus, laryngitis, lower respiratory infection going on since November. In Nov., after 12 days of a cold and the green mucus from my lungs and nose worsening my Dr. prescribed a 5 day course of Augmentin. It cleared up the green quickly but I was left with a lingering dry cough/asthma symptoms and nasal congestion that never resolved. Dec.
Avatar n tn How long has this been going on? Have you been running fever? This could be a number of things such as laryngitis, pharyngitis, sinus drainage, tonsilitis or strep throat. If the problem persists or becomes worse, you should consult your physician.
Avatar f tn No matter how hard I try to swallow correctly, some water feels like it's going down the wrong tube and I start coughing/choking on it. I'm hoping its allergies or laryngitis or something, which I've never had, but I can only imagine could feel like this. Thanks!
Avatar n tn Nick I have the same symptoms, is it worse in the morning?? Feeling like you have to clear throat or you have like slight laryngitis, for a brief time??? Please let me know if you got any anwers?? And why those meds did the Dr. think its allergies?? Do you smoke?? I quit 2 yrs ago! Hope you post again!!
Avatar n tn Yes, the cough could be due to Mono. The mucus and voice raspiness suggests laryngitis. This can sometimes be seen with reflux of liquid and/or food from the stomach that then drops onto the vocal cords along with heartburn usually. Mucus from postnasal drip could be another cause. If the cough is really lessening, give it more time to go away. Rest assured, if your pulmonary function tests were normal, you definitely do not have COPD.
Avatar f tn I've had silent GERD for the past-4 years. (gave me severe laryngitis for 4 months until I took double PPI (Rabeprazole 2x20mg), which controlled it. Since lumpectomy, first, I thought it was triggered by movement (walking/getting up too fast, bending over), cold air, and first thing in the morning, movement/getting up still triggers it. However, there are other times when I'm just sitting there. I realize that often it's after I've eaten something. Could it possibly being GERD-related?
Avatar n tn Symptoms can include a headache or pressure in the area of the sinuses, a stuffy nose, achy teeth, postnasal drip, cough, sore throat, laryngitis, constant low fever, and thick, yellow to green nasal drainage. The most common cause of sinusitis is an infection, especially when the mucus is green. Sinus infections can be difficult to treat since they respond slowly. When a bacterial infection is the cause you may need to take an antibiotic for at least 3 weeks.
1127040 tn?1289722262 Other causes are numberous •Allergies •Coughing (may be caused by allergies or diseases such as bronchitis) •Excessive use of alcohol or tobacco •Excessive use of the voice (as in shouting or singing) •Gastroesophageal reflux •Inhaling irritating substances •Laryngitis •Prolonged or excessive crying (in children) •Viral illness Other causes include: •Aneurysms of the upper aorta •Bronchoscopy or other tests (temporary) Chest pain can be due to cornary artery disease.
Avatar m tn I am tired of coughing all the time and am sure the people around me are tired of hearing it. I went to a doctor who tested me or allergies and said I am allergic to nothing. She did a chest xray which came back clear as well. I have constant sinus drainage and my cough usually gets me gasping for breath when I laugh...odd I know. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.
