I've had a "hoarse" voice since April 2nd (when I was sick). I'm all better, but my voice is still hoarse... What might be the cause of that?

About 1 month ago I lost my voice, went to doc and was put on a prenasone pack that I finished three weeks ago...My voice is still hoarse and my face is swollen. I thought facial swelling might be caused by staten meds I was put on during the month but

Now, you should have an ENT look at your vocal cords directly with a special camera in the clinic to determine the cause. ...Read more
