Yes: Loss of voice is usually due to laryngitis it may last a couple of days but usually recovers without any complications. Treatment is supportive without the need of any medications. If however your sore throat gets worse with high fevers and increased cough you should see a physician for pharyngitis. This is also usually viral and does not need any medications, however rarely strep throat maybe diagnosed which does need antibiotics.
