Laryngitis is the inflammation of the voice box or vocal chords, often due to viral infection. The main symptoms of laryngitis are a sore throat, a hoarse voice and sometimes losing your voice too. Laryngitis will usually resolve on its own within 1 to 2 weeks and it is important to drink plenty of fluids, avoid speaking, and gargling with warm salty water (not advised for children).
