Absolutely.: If you have ever attended an exciting football game and cheered vociferously for your team, the next morning (if not later that night!) you were probably hoarse and your throat was probably sore. Babies crying use the same basic equipment as your cheering. Obviously it requires rather forceful, red-faced crying (not just a whimper), usually with a waterfall of tears! resting the voice improves it.

A 48-year-old member asked:
What do I do if i keep getting sore throats?

Sore throats : Getting sick repeatedly tends to happen to people under a lot of stress. Stress can adversely affect your immune system. It can also happen if you make a big move and get exposed to a lot of new viruses. Other more serious conditions that affect your immune system can cause that, too, so if in doubt you should see a doctor.
