This is the 2nd time i have gotten laryngitis this month. The first time I got it, it went away in about 3 days. Why do i keep getting it? I don't use my voice too much. I'm not sick i feel fine. I am 15. If i go to an ENT doctor, what will they do or say?
Laryngitis can occur from a number of causes. An ENT may look into your larynx with a laryngoscope to see if there's any polyps or other changes in your vocal cords causing them to be easily strained and predisposed to lead to larynitis.
Infection, straining your voice (not providing enough volume of breath to support vocalization), clearing your throat, GERD, post-nasal drip, and many other reasons can predispose to laryngitis. Go ask your ENT
