Strange voice: causes and treatment at home
In the vast majority of cases, hoarseness in children (and indeed in adults) is associated with colds. SARS, acute respiratory infections, bronchitis, sore throat - all these diseases include the sore throat and the voice that has changed beyond recognition in their symptoms. The patient may hoar, wheeze and even gurgle, but more often he speaks only in a whisper.
Being treated at home
Have you got a voice? Of course, you can consult a doctor and buy in the pharmacy the entire range of mint candies and cough lozenges. However, there is another option: resort to traditional medicine. Below is a list of ingredients that you may need during the treatment process. Surely most of them are at your home.
So, if you suddenly find that your voice has sat down. Examine your refrigerator and kitchen for the following products: milk, honey, baking soda, butter, mineral water with gas, apple cider vinegar, honeycomb. It would also be useful to look into the first-aid kit.Perhaps there will be an inhaler, various essential oils, dried herbs, the drug "Lugol", syringes and cotton swabs. As you can see, this list does not include anything unusual.
In order to take emergency measures, it is not at all necessary to wait for the voice to finally sit down. As soon as you notice the first signs of a cold, prepare a healing drink: take a glass of milk, heat it, then add some honey, butter and soda (literally at the tip of the knife). Stir all this thoroughly and drink before bedtime. Most likely, you wake up completely healthy.
If you did not pay attention to the alarming symptoms, and your voice finally disappeared as a result, treatment should include inhalation. They should be made on the basis of decoctions of herbs (oregano, celandine, mint) and essential oils (in principle, any will do, but doctors prefer orange and lavender). Do you have an inhaler? Excellent. Fill it with mineral water and drip a little bit of olive or sea buckthorn oil there. The procedure should be carried out at least ten minutes.
If you are a thrifty person and in the summer have stockpiled medicinal plants, make a special tea. Herbal preparations moisten the mucous membrane and strengthen the ligaments, and this is exactly what your tired throat needs.
You have got a voice, and you want to get in shape as soon as possible? Lubricate the throat with a warm solution of apple cider vinegar (just make sure that it is not too hot) or Lugol. To do this, you will need a cotton swab or a sterile syringe without a needle (you can use it to inject the solution). Do not strain your vocal cords, try to speak as little as possible for a few days (by the way, doctors also do not recommend whispering). Eat bee honeycombs instead of dessert - they are great for lifting hoarseness. Rinsing with herbal decoctions or just warm water with soda and a drop of iodine also helps. But antibiotics should not be abused - leave them for a more serious infection. Try these tips and your voice will return to you very soon.
