Laryngitis Treatment At CMC Dubai

Laryngitis & Voice Disorders is an inflammation of the larynx, which is the voice box located in the throat. It can be caused by a viral or bacterial infection, overuse or strain of the voice, or exposure to irritants like smoke or pollution.

Symptoms of laryngitis

Symptoms may include:

  • Hoarseness
  • Loss of voice
  • Coughing
  • Throat discomfort or pain

Treatment for Laryngitis

Treatment typically involves:

  • Resting the voice
  • Drinking plenty of fluids
  • Over-the-counter medications like pain relievers or throat lozenges to manage symptoms.

Voice disorders are conditions that affect the production of sound by the vocal cords, which are located in the larynx.

Types of Voice Disorder

There are many types of voice disorders, including:

  1. Dysphonia: This is a general term for disorders that affect the quality or strength of the voice. Dysphonia can be caused by a variety of factors, including vocal cord damage, neurological disorders, or vocal misuse or overuse.
  2. Vocal cord nodules: These are small, callous-like growths on the vocal cords that are often caused by vocal misuse or overuse. They can cause hoarseness, a weak voice, and difficulty speaking.
  3. Vocal cord paralysis: This occurs when one or both of the vocal cords are unable to move properly, which can cause hoarseness, a weak voice, and difficulty speaking or swallowing.
  4. Spasmodic dysphonia: This is a neurological disorder that causes involuntary spasms of the vocal cords, which can cause the voice to break or sound strained.

Treatment for voice disorders depends on the specific type and cause of the disorder. Some treatments may include voice therapy to help improve vocal habits, medications to manage symptoms, or surgery to remove growths or correct vocal cord damage. It’s important to see a healthcare professional if you are experiencing persistent or severe symptoms related to your voice or throat.
