Yes, it can.: Any irritation to vocal cord long term can cause inflammation and swelling. I agree with allergy test although not all post nasal drips are from allergies. How is air quality in your city? And do you mouth breathe? If the medications you are taking don‘t help after a few weeks, I would recommend stopping because the meds could cause dry mouth exacerbating the problem.
