Acute laryngitis is caused by exposure to dust, pollutiion,
talking too much or a throat infection
It is usually associated with nasal and pharyngeal
catarrh and sometimes fever. Larngitis begins with a feeling
of fullness in the throat, This is followed by hoarseness
and throat pain. The throat feels raw and dry cough is a common
A type of laryngitis called Laryngismus stridulus usually
occurs in children.
In this type, the symptoms develop suddenly at night . As
the mucous membrane of the larynx in children is loose in
texture, it becomes much more swollen and sleep dyspnoea is
a prominent symptom.
The child has a croupy cough and there is evidence of catarrh
during the day but the distresing symptoms are worst at night.
The laboured breathing causes discomfort to the child and
makes him anxious and restless.
Avoid things that tend to cause laryngitis, In case
you catch it do not talk much or do things that aggravate
it. Taking a glass of hot milk helps to loosen
the accumulated mucus in the throat
Aconite belladonna, spongia, Phosphorus, Hepersulphur and
Causticum are good to use
