Laryngitis is inflammation of your voice box (larynx).
Symptoms of laryngitis include a croaky voice, difficulty speaking and a sore throat.
Laryngitis usually gets better on its own. You can ease symptoms by resting your voice and drinking fluids. Cough and throat medicines can also help.
Laryngitis is often caused by an infection like a cold or flu. It can also be caused by an allergy to things like dust or fumes.
