Dr Philippa Kaye shares the 'sudden' symptoms of viral infection laryngitis

Dr Kaye pointed out that some people might experience a cough at the same time.

The main symptoms of laryngitis, as pointed out by Dr Kaye and the NHS:

  • A hoarse (croaky) voice
  • Sometimes losing your voice
  • An irritating cough that does not go away
  • Always needing to clear your throat
  • A sore throat.

Dr Kaye assured that laryngitis, especially if it has been caused by a virus, will “go away in one to two weeks”.

Dr Kaye advised: “If it hasn’t, especially if you have a persistent sore throat or a persistent hoarse voice (even if you otherwise feel well), it’s important you go to the doctors at three weeks so we can check what else is going on.”
