1.Acute bronchitis, 
2.Allergic rhino laryngitis, CT scan report:mild mucosal  thickening in bilateral maxillary sinuses.Still same prb after treatment.

Allergy testing: In allergic rhinitis, it would not be unusual to only have mild mucosal thickening on ct scan. That's good news... You don't have sinusitis or some other process going on! if 3-4 weeks of regular nasal steroid spray doesn't help, (must be used as prescribe to work) then you may want to see an allergist for formal allergy testing.

What is the treatment for laryngitis?

Supportive care: Laryngitis is usually a viral infection, and is contagious. Push fluids, gargle with warm salt water, and use lozenges. Get plenty of rest. There is no treatment other than supportive care. Don't share drinking glasses, and avoid close contact with others. It will decrease the chances of others catching it. Hope you feel better soon.

Should amox 500 2-3x a day being helping after 7 days of treatment for bronchitis and laryngitis?

Should amox 500 2-3x a day being helping after 7 days of treatment for bronchitis and laryngitis?

Improvement expected: Sometimes there is prolonged inflammation in the airway. If you continue to cough after finishing the course of antibiotics, I would recommend an evaluation. Bronchitis can caused by either viral illness, in which case the antibiotics will not help and bacterial illnesses. After 7 days, I would not expect any fever and the cough should be improving.

Are there some natural remedies to cure laryngitis please?

Are there some natural remedies to cure laryngitis please?

Hydration: One must know the cause of the laryngitis. The term literally means inflammation of the mucosa or lining of the vocal folds. The problem can be the result of overuse or misuse of the voice, true viral infection (bacterial infection very seldom). There is no gargle for this because you would gag and aspirate it into your trachea. Drinking 4 to 6 full glasses of water a day may help. See ENT doc.

I get laryngitis about twice a year. Is that abnormal? I work in a profession where I need my voice. How do you cure this?

I get laryngitis about twice a year. Is that abnormal? I work in a profession where I need my voice. How do you cure this?

Laryngitis: Larynigitis (a viral cause of acute hoarseness) is a pretty common infection. Everyone will get it, and usually more than once. For most adults they get it every few years or so. If you are in a profession where you use your voice a lot, then these episodes of hoarseness twice a year are probably not viral laryngitis, but are probably episodes of voice decompensation related to your work.

I've had acute bronchitis & Laryngitis since about Saturday and have been off work since.  Is it ok to go back tomorrow without infecting the office?

No fever?: If you are free of fever and systemic symptoms like body aches, headaches, etc. You should be non contagious even though you still may be coughing. Just in case wash or sanitize your hands frequently. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!

Time/rest/steroids: Steroids are often given to allow critical performances, but this is not a preferred regimen. TIme, warm / hot water gargles, vocal rest, humidification, hydration. These are the mainstays of therapy. Of these time and vocal rest are probably the most important.

Gargling: You are not going to cure laryngitis. It is usually viral, occasionally traumatic and sometimes overuse strain. You may find relief of symptoms by gargling with warm saline.

Is there any cure for laryngitis?

Sure: Depends on cause. Most laryngitis occurs with a cold, which means it 's viral. It will improve with time. Some laryngitis is bacterial, but less common. An antibiotic would be used. Some chronic laryngitis could be due to reflux or allergy, and so would be treated with proton pump inhibitors or allergy medications.

Does air conditioner effects on laryngitis?

Does air conditioner effects on laryngitis?

Maybe, maybe not: Laryngitis symptoms are usually caused by viruses, but allergies, stomach reflux, etc..., can also cause symptoms. Cool, moist air can improve symptoms (vs. Warm, dry air). An air conditioner cools the air, but also dries the air, so it is hard to say how much help an a/c would offer. Also, old or dirty a/c air can have molds, dust, etc..., that can cause allergy symptoms and make things worse.
