Home Treatment for Laryngitis

Lifestyle and preventive measures

The impact of laryngitis can be reduced or even prevented with a few simple measures at home:

  • Get a humidifier;
  • Rest your voice;
  • Eliminate the cause of laryngitis, or its contributing factors;
  • Drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration;
  • Moisten the throat by using lozenges or gargling it with salt water;
  • Wash your hands regularly;
  • Use disposable tissues and throw them away immediately after use;
  • Treat gastroesophageal reflux disease if you have it, asthma, diabetes, hyperthyroidism or respiratory allergies with appropriate treatment;
  • Vaccinate your children against diphtheria, mumps, rubella, measles and hemophilus influenzae;
  • If you often put strain on the voice, plan rest periods after each event;
  • Regularly clean the nose and hands after sneezing;
  • Sneeze and cough into your elbow or into a handkerchief;
  • Ventilate the room regularly and maintain a warm temperature;
  • Cover yourself and your child to protect them from the cold. But not too much, as this can be counterproductive and promote excessive sweating and cold snaps;
  • Wear a mask.
