Hoarse Voice : Hello Member933, I would recommend an evaluation with an Otolaryngologist (ENT) to assess his throat. He may need his throat and vocal cords visualized with a scope and camera to check for inflammation, abnormalities, or dysfunction of the vocal cords. For further Pediatric consults, my direct link is: healthtap.com/vanessanealmd at key code PNYTKV.
