Laryngitis: You likely have developed laryngitis, which is quite common after a cold. Your voice should return after a few days. There's no particular remedy for it, but drinking plenty of water can help to keep throat hydrated. Some of mine patients like to drink water with a bit of honey and lemon juice. It works wonder on some people.

Sore throat : You could have any number of things, from strep throat to post nasal drip from allergies. Do you have fever? What are your other symptoms? You should probably be seen by a provider to rule out strep. Untreated strep can cause serious problems.
