Hi doctor,

Actually, my problem does not seem to be a serious one, but as of now it has become really annoying for me. Basically, I am giving some singing auditions. But, the problem is continuously for a period of some past eight to nine months I am having some kind of my congestion in my throat, which is not there in my normal days. But, when I practise, I am facing a lot of problems as I am not able to finish up my notes properly. This did not happen before. I have been facing this problem consistently for the last few months. Please I need some solution to this problem. Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You are facing this problem because you are putting strain on your sound box and vocal cords.
  • You need to take a break. Give rest to your sound box for 10 to 14 days.
  • Take plenty of water. Do steam inhalation twice a day.
  • Also, I suggest you use some anti-inflammatory medicine for relief of pain and congestion.
  • With the above measures your problems will settle. If not, then please consult an ENT specialist for a physical evaluation.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • I can tell you the generic name of medicine, but it may be available with a different brand name. Consult a doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.
  1. Capsule Azithromycin 250 mg twice daily for five days.
  2. Tablet Chymotrypsin thrice daily for 14 days.
  • Also, I advice voice rest and steam inhalation along with this.
