Please help: Laringitis virus
I have Laringitis for over a week now, has been on antibiotics, celestamine, gargling with salt, Loca-Biotal, nothing helps.

I have also been in bed for 3 days, had fever and pains in my body, just like a normal flu, my throat is swollen and very sore.

The fever is now gone, but my voice is still affected and the glands around my throat is also swollen.

And I need my voice for my work, I work with people.

What can I do to get better sooner.

Dear Cindy
Sometimes we just have to sit the infection out, especially if it is a viral infection. Sometimes it helps to take Predisone to get your voice back - you'll need a prescription from your doctor.
