Specialized laryngitis treatment is available at Scotch Institute of Ear Nose & Throat in Land 0’ Lakes, Florida, the practice of board-certified otolaryngologist Dr. Brett Scotch. If you are experiencing a lingering dry, scratchy throat and voice hoarseness, don’t live with uncomfortable symptoms – visit our practice and find the relief you deserve.
Dr. Scotch has a unique level of experience providing treatment for laryngitis and a variety of other voice disorders and throat problems. Laryngitis occurs when the vocal cords become swollen as a result of vocal overuse or a viral or bacterial infection. Other factors may also contribute to the development of laryngitis, like smoking, gastroesophageal reflux, and inhaled irritants.
Most cases of mild laryngitis resolve on their own within a few days or weeks, but it’s important to seek laryngitis treatment from an otolaryngologist (ENT specialist) if:
- You experience laryngitis symptoms, but don’t have a cold, flu, or sinus infection
- Your voice hoarseness lasts for more than three weeks
- You feel a lump in your neck
- You have difficulty breathing, swallowing, or speaking
- You cough up blood
You can also visit Scotch Institute of ENT, located near Land O’Lakes, FL, if you need to relieve voice hoarseness quickly to prepare for a speaking engagement, concert, or any other event that requires extensive vocal use.
