Comment from: loka girl, 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: October 18

I had laryngitis for the 2nd time this year. I went to a doctor who gave me Panadol and Exylin but it's been a week now, I still have my constant irritating cough. It usually attacks during the resting hours. It has become worse for a week now and my voice still hasn't come back. I've tried already all remedies like tea with lemon, gargling with warm water and salt, eating citrus, eating ginger, having drinks high with vitamin C and lozenges; but still my voice is hoarse. Mostly I speak by whispering especially at work. I hope to get well soon.
