Hoarse Voice

>> 3/05/2010

I remember I just did went out the office and the temperature is at the highest point. Later had I known that I no longer have voice coming out when I speak and open my mouth.


  • If you smoke, quit
  • Avoid agents which dehydrate the body, such as alcohol and caffeine
  • Avoid secondhand smoke
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Humidify your home
  • Watch your diet - avoid spicy foods and alcohol
  • Try not to use your voice too long or too loudly
  • Seek professional voice training
  • Avoid speaking or singing when your voice is injured or hoarse (this is similar to not walking on a sprained ankle)
Hoarseness due to a cold or flu may be evaluated by family physicians, pediatricians and internists (who have learned how to examine the larynx). When hoarseness lasts longer than two weeks or has no obvious cause, it should be evaluated by an otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeon (ear, nose and throat doctor). Problems with the voice are best managed by a team of professionals who know and understand how the voice functions. These professionals are otolaryngology-head and neck surgeons, speech/ language pathologists, and teachers of singing, acting, or public speaking. Voice disorders have many different characteristics which may give professionals a clue to the cause.
