Ask A Doctor - I can't sing soprano anymore - DesiMD Healthcare Services


I recently got sick and had a sore throat, I am an active member in a choir at my school, I noticed after I got sick I couldn't talk well and couldn't sing the higher notes, I tried but either nothing came out or it came out in squeaks or rasps, should I be concerned? - Asked by H K on 05-Nov-2014 23:51:31

    Sore Throat can be Pharyngitis and Laryngitis . If your larynx is involved then definitely there would be some problem with your voice. But this will get resolved in a month  time with proper use of anti biotics . So you can just wait. Till then you can do Warm Water plus Salt Gargling and Have Warm water for drinking. You can also meet a ENT Specialist for further treatment or advice
