Perhaps: Go see a laryngologist (ent who specializes in voice problems). If you are a smoker, quit smoking. The classic raspy smokers voice is due to a condition called reinke's edema. This can sometimes be helped with surgery, but only if you quit smoking.

Can my baby decipher the tone in my voice?

Yes: Your baby knows your voice very well from early on and will understand your tone if used in appropriate situations with consistency. This is how they learn what tones in your voice mean when you use them.

Yes: It can be. When you cough, you put high velocity small particles past the vocal folds, as well as strain the larynx to produce the cough. This can irritate and inflame the vocal folds, causing you to lose your voice.

A 29-year-old member asked:

Is it possible for a young little girl who was normal in social situations before to suddenly become very withdrawn?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Laura Webb
Pediatrics 13 years experience
Yes: This could happen if she encountered a frightful social situation for her and now she is nervous in similar situations. Talk with her and find out if she is anxious or scared about anything in particular. Try to avoid loud large groups at first and instead bring to her small gatherings of people she knows and is comfortable around. As she warms up slowly start introducing her to bigger groups.
