My voice is very high pitch...I m 17 year old boy....How can I make my voice manly? Please help.

It, s been about a month, loosing voice. It is very husky and high pitched and very dried throat. Could you help me with this? Thank you.

Need To See ENT: Without knowing more details, you probably should see an ear, nose, and throat specialist (ent). Especially since this has been going on for a month and if you are a smoker, it's a must. Try to get an appointment asap, if you can. Often turns out to be something minor...But you never know until you get checked out.
