Hoarse Voice (Laryngitis)

Laryngitis is the term used to denote the inflammatory condition of the larynx - the voice box.


  • Acute laryngitis is a short-term viral or bacterial throat infection, often caused due to an attack of cold.
  • It may also be caused by some other irritants, like smoking, pan chewing, gutkha, alcohol etc.
  • Some people are prone to chronic laryngitis, such as heavy smokers, and those who work in a dusty environment or who use their voices continuously like singers, speakers etc.

Signs & Symptoms

  • The characteristic sign is a hoarse voice, which may lead to total voice loss.
  • A sore throat and difficulty in swallowing are also common.
  • Chronic laryngitis develops over a period of time and sufferers may cough and clear their throats regularly and always have a hoarse voice.

Herbal Medicines

  1. Inhalation: Inhale the vapours coming out-of hot water in which a few drops of eucalyptus oil have been added, for about 10 minutes.
  2. Add some black pepper powder to a cup of warm milk, and drink the mixture twice a day. A little bit of sugar can also be added, if desired.
  3. The fresh juice of tulsi leaves ( ½ tst) and 1 tsp of honey well mixed, should be taken 3 to 4 times a day.
  4. Akkarakara (root of Anacyclus pyrethrum). Make a fine powder of Akkarakara, and use in small doses of 300 to 600mg twice a day with warm water. This increases the secretion of saliva, and is thereby useful in hoarse voice.
