    How do I get rid of laryngitis?

    I have been suffering from laryngitis for three months. I have gone to a doctor, who put me on cortisone nasal spray and a cortisone oral inhaler, as well as a five-day round of antibiotics.  However, I still have laryngitis and a lot of post-nasal drip. I really want to get well. What would you suggest?

    Every few years I lose my voice after an upper respiratory illness, especially if I am coughing alot, or had bronchitis.  Sometimes I can get it back with large doses of Crystal Vitamin C. When I cannot, all that brings it back is a Cortisone shot from the doctor. Then it WILL come back and normally too. If I do not get this shot,my voice can be out for weeks or months! Cortisone is an anti-inflammatory. Once about 15 years ago,I was diagnoses with nodes on my vocal chords. I do not believe they are still inflamed.I do not sing or use my voice alot. I often wonder if this loss of voice occurs because of having my tonsils out when I was 3. Who knows. All I do know is that cortisone shots are a Great Last resort remedy!
