Home Remedies for Hoarseness of Voice

Hoarseness is an abnormal change in the voice caused by a variety of conditions. It is generally due to irritation, or injury to the vocal cords. Hoarseness normally gives the voice a rough and harsh quality, though it may also cause a change in the pitch or volume of the voice. This occurs by an inflammation of the larynx (also referred to as the voice box) caused by infection, abnormal growth or by taking hot and cold substances alternately. The person suffers from dry, irritating cough, pain in swallowing and a persistent urge to clear the throat. He may also have a tickling or burning sensation in the throat, a coated tongue, and fever.

The most common cause of hoarseness of voice is the inflammation of the vocal cords (acute laryngitis) caused by an upper respiratory tract infection, and less commonly from misuse or overuse of the voice. Other causes of hoarseness include benign vocal cord nodules or polyps, thyroid problems, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), inhalation of irritants, allergies, smoking, trauma to the larynx or vocal cords, neurological conditions and cancer of the larynx.

Hoarseness Prevention and Treatment Tips

Give as much rest to the voice as possible
Try not to use your voice too loudly or too long
Avoid decongestants as they can dry the vocal cords and prolong irritation
Take steam inhalation to relieve irritated vocal cords
Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol
Humidify your home
Do not eat spicy foods
Control your cough
To reduce the risk of hoarseness, avoid exposure to others with infections
Avoid speaking or singing when your voice is hoarse
Drink lots of water
Avoid whispering because it strains the vocal cord more than speaking does
Avoid agents that dehydrate the body, such as caffeine and alcohol
