Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Vocal cord swelling may be due to various causes like respiratory tract infection, gastric reflux, voice abuse, etc.
  • So, first thing you need to do is absolute voice rest for couple of days and maintaining proper voice hygiene. Except that to minimize reflux, avoid spicy and fried foods.
  • For supportive treatment you can take Rabeprazole 20 mg once a day. Steam inhalation is a good curative method.

Treatment plan:

1. Take plenty of fluid intake orally.

2. Take absolute voice rest.

3. Have steam inhalation.

4. Take capsule Rabeprazole 20 mg once a day.

Preventive measures:

1. Avoid spicy and fried foods.

2. Avoid frequent throat cleaning.

3. Avoid shouting, screaming, whispering and lengthy conversation.

Regarding follow up:
