Common Questions and Answers about Throat and voice remedies

throat

Avatar m tn I was living in Laredo,TX which is humid and hot for about 8 years and did not have any scratchy throat problems. I moved to El Paso, TX which is dry and dusty and developed a very scratchy throat to the point of having a very hoarse voice. I thought maybe it was gerd or something like that but after medication it would not go away. I had to move back to Laredo for 2 years and my scratchy throat went away almost immediately.
Avatar f tn Any hints as to what we can do in the meantime, since resting her voice (not singing in any range other than her normal voice, not yelling, etc), fluids, throat drops and other home remedies do not seem to be helping? PS She has not even begun any hints of puberty yet (not an "early bloomer") so this does not appear to be part of the problem.
Avatar n tn My voice began getting hoarse and cracky. Today I wokeup and my voice is completely gone.i was thinking maybe a cold because the weather is weird now so sometimes I go out dressed like its spring when it's cold. I also had oral sex a few days ago. Can you tell me what this might be?
7986870 tn?1401635716 I was wondering if any of you know any safe remedies for a sore throat? My throat hurts really bad, it hurts to swallow.
1545493 tn?1293569978 And I grow ever more frustrated and enraged with each passing minute my throat is dry, hoarse and on fire! Honestly I highly doubt it can be allergies when I've never had them to this degree before! What did my body just decide to wake up and be allergic to the world one day? I highly doubt it! PLEASE HELP ME!!! It's affecting my livelihood! I need to sing!!! It's all I do, and all I've been doing since the age of 5!!! I'd rather die than not sing another day of my life!
Avatar m tn This past Tuesday, I had a mishap with a very hot piece of food that went straight to my throat for a few seconds, and I drank some cold water real fast. What's strange is that there was hardly any pain then nor until now, four days later (Saturday), however, my voice has been affected (hoarseness). My voice has not come back to normal since, and now I'm starting to get concerned.

Avatar n tn It is Wednesday and I am home from work with these symptoms plus a barely squeakable voice. I am only taking Mucinex to loosen and thin mucous and doing nasal washes. I am not sure if this is a cold or allergy. Many of my students and colleagues have colds. Any remedies? Fast ways to improve voice? I am presenting at a workshop on Friday. Should I be concerned about blood in my nasal mucous? Thanks.
Avatar n tn While on the antibiotics I started losing my voice. I took the full course of meds and during which my sore throat and ear ache went away and my voice returned. The day I stopped taking the medication I noticed my throat was starting to hurt again. Now here I am sitting March 9th 2010 and my sore throat is terrible. I have no fever, no appitite and no congestion. Though I am starting to feel my voice goin again.
Avatar m tn then it started getting worse, and my voice got really hoarse, coughing more, nose always congested. and till this day things have gotten worse, ive had an operation but didnt do anything, doctors say my nose looks fine, my voice box looks normal. and i took an allergy test and im allergic to dust, but the sprays she gave me barely did anything.

Avatar f tn Hello ladies, I will be 9 weeks tomorrow and today I woke up with a strong sore throat that now made me lose my voice. Do you know any good natural remedy to alleviate the pain and the discomfort? Thank you!!!
Avatar n tn The throat muscles seem minor to me, and more like just in your imagination from worrying too much. And a 1 minute hoarse voice is not anything to worry about.
Avatar f tn Yea that was all I threw up when I had morning sickness. I had to force myself to eat and drink so I would throw something else up. Eat lots of salad with grilled chicken or veggies. Half the time I kept everything down but still threw up bile. Get throat lozegens non medicated to coat your throat it will burn or throat after a while. I would lose my voice for days. And remedies didn't help. I lost 20lbs in 2 weeks. Drink lots of Gatorade. That was all my doctor allowed me to drink.

Avatar m tn If the sore throat is from a virus, there are several at home "remedies" you can try - they won't "cure" the virus that is causing the sore throat, but will make the throat feel better so you're not so miserable - hot tea with honey or lemon (or both), gargling with warm salt water, popsicles. Stick with easy to swallow foods such as applesauce, scrambled eggs, jello - avoid spicy or highly acidic foods.
Avatar f tn (Have tried all traditional thinning methods - hydration, medication, natural remedies). Voice permanently hoarse. Top left of throat permanently sore (poss vocal fold?) and throat generally is tickly but no infection there. Had chest infection which is now clear. Blue asthma inhaler caused coughing and laryngospasms so was stopped. Steroids helped the original chest problems but don’t help the “new” post-chest infection cough so were stopped.
Avatar n tn This is interesting as i went to ENT last year and he said i had over used my voice box and that i must shout a lot!! I do not! He said no cure just get on with it! So maybe its the acid causing my lump in my throat and pain in my neck-agony on a bad day, but surely he would have seen something on the big camera he stuck down my throat?!
Avatar n tn I had a horrible sore throat, fever, body aches, etc., and went to the doc - was tested for strep and was negative, but like you, because ol the symptoms, was put on antibiotics. They did not help and I continued to get worse. Returned to doc four days later and they retested me for strep and this time it came up positive and when I asked why it didn't show before, that was what they told me - it could have been too early in the illness to register.
Avatar f tn yes you have red and inflamed and thickened vocal chords your voice is hoarse and you are wheezing, but unless i see you having an attack i cannot agree" which is ver frustrating because if i'm not wheezing from the lungs then where else am i wheezing from, anyhow going on the assumption, that it is VCD, i went to see a voice therapist, i don't know how it work where your from but here in Mtl they don't know too much about VCD and don't have enough specialist so u see the vo
Avatar f tn It hurts low in my throat--below voice box and my throat feels phlegmy. I cough a lot and it hurts. The coughing almost sounds/feels like asthma but it's not, it's coming from my throat, not my chest. My throat feels weird when it hurts(or I start to loose my voice) in the lower part of my throat/neck area. It's interfering with my work and my life now, but nothing seems to be wrong with my vocal chords.
Avatar n tn i have a hoarse voice and have a lump next to a nerve near my voice box,plus i find it hard to swallow what can be done for this
Avatar m tn Your long history of apparent sinus and throat infection raises the question of a possible deficiency of your immune system; that is, a defect in your resistance to infection. There are a number of possible causes of the weakness and tiredness you describe (including adverse effects of antibiotics), unrelated to infection one of which, gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) could cause the irritation you experience or predispose to recurrent infection.
Avatar n tn She took a pregnancy test and it came up negative. She also just came down with a very sore throat, slight fever, and body aches. She will not take any medicine because she thinks she may still be pregnant, and does not want to hurt the fetus. What can she take that will both help her get better and at the same time is safe for pregnant women?
