Some people must have experienced hoarseness that makes it very disturbing and inhibits daily activities. Knowing the various causes of hoarseness, can help you to prevent and overcome various problems related to hoarseness.

Basically the sound is generated by the vibration of two vocal cords in the throat, precisely in the larynx. If the throat function is interrupted, the sound coming out of the mouth can become hoarse. Before your activities are interrupted, you should find out the cause of hoarseness and how to overcome them.

Various Conditions That Can Cause Hoarseness

The sound produced by each person varies depending on the shape and size of the vocal cords, throat, nose and mouth. Generally the voice becomes hoarse because of the function of the throat and its organs are disturbed. There are several conditions that can be the cause of hoarseness, among others

Too much noise

Some people often do the act of shouting, screaming, cheering, crying, talking very fast or fast, singing loudly, and talking too long can cause the voice to become hoarse for a while. This hoarse voice can be relieved by resting, reducing the use of sound and drinking lots of water. But sometimes, hoarseness to singers, teachers, public speakers, or those whose work depends on sound, is difficult to cure so sound therapy is needed to overcome it.
Sore throat

Sore throat is sometimes accompanied by hoarseness. Inflammation of the throat is generally very common in children aged 5-15 years. However, adults of all ages can also experience it. Inflammation of the throat can spread from one person to another and interfere with throat function. To overcome this condition, the doctor can give antibiotics and lozenges. In addition, people with strep throat are also advised to drink plenty of water and rinse with salt water.
Laryngitis

Laryngitis is one of the most common causes of hoarseness. Laryngitis can cause the vocal cords to swell due to allergies, respiratory infections, or flu. How to deal with laryngitis varies depending on the cause. If this condition occurs because of an upper respiratory infection or flu, you only need adequate rest, drink plenty of water and consume over-the-counter painkillers. However, if the laryngitis is caused by allergies, allergy medications or antihistamines are needed.



To avoid hoarseness, try to always maintain general health and throat function. You can do several ways to maintain a healthy throat, for example by increasing drinking water, reducing alcoholic and caffeine drinks, not smoking, and eating nutritious foods. Visit a doctor if the complaint feels more disturbing, to get the treatment needed.
