Health Tip: Treat Laryngitis

(HealthDay News) -- When vocal cords become inflamed, it is more difficult to speak and the voice could sound hoarse, the Nemours Foundation says.

The voice is produced by the processes of lengthening, shortening, tensing and relaxing the vocal cords.

Laryngitis may be triggered by speaking or singing loudly, or by excess stomach acid that backs up into the throat and inflames the vocal cords.

In some cases, germs can infect the vocal cords and trigger the condition.

If you or a loved one has laryngitis, Nemours says here's what a doctor is likely to recommend:

  • Avoid straining your voice or yelling.
  • Use a humidifier to keep your throat from drying out.
  • If laryngitis is caused by stomach acid, your doctor may recommend medication and ask you to avoid foods that can make the problem worse.
