is there a permanent cure for sore throat due to laryngopharyngeal reflux?

Med & surg options: Exposure of the vocal cords to stomach acid & pepsin will result in inflammation of the vocal cords (as is also often seen with acid regurgitation). Acute laryngitis may result, but watch out for chronic hoarseness, throat clearing, airway spasms, bronchitis, an asthma-type presentation, and even a higher risk of throat cancer. Had response to acid blocking drug before considering surgical option?
