Some of the symptoms can include:
Check with your doctor if symptoms of laryngitis persist longer than 2 weeks.

This condition often occurs as a result of a viral infection which may come from another condition such as a acid reflux, cold, flu or bronchitis.
Many people can experience a bout of laryngitis after attending a sporting event or concert because of straining their voice yelling or cheering.
