Treatment for Laryngitis at Riverview Health

When you come to a Riverview Health primary care location, your physician will perform a physical exam to help determine the cause of the laryngitis. If needed, he or she will refer you to an ENT specialist.

Laryngitis can usually be treated at home by resting your voice or speaking softly if needed. Drink plenty of fluids, and avoid smoking and secondhand smoke. If your symptoms haven’t improved in a few weeks, contact your primary care physician for further evaluation.

If your laryngitis is caused by acid reflux or a problem with the way you talk or sing, taking steps to reduce your reflux or change your speaking or singing technique may help.
