Does strep throat cause hoarseness or loss of voice?

Occasionally: Sometimes if the tonsils are very swollen and infected the patient can get what is known as the "hot potato voice". It means that their speech is muffled and distorted.

Hoarseness is more common with croup and laryngitis. ...Read more

I have a sever soar throat and caugh and loss of voice. And congestion. Had bad. Acid reflex recently. Could it be  laryngitis?

Yes: Loss of voice is usually due to laryngitis it may last a couple of days but usually recovers without any complications. Treatment is supportive without the need of any medications. If however your sore throat gets worse with high fevers and increased cough you should see a physician for pharyngitis. This is also usually viral and does not need any medications, however rarely strep throat maybe diagnosed which does need antibiotics. ...Read more

Saline nasal washes, salt water gargles for decongestion remain the mainstay for treatment though, together with voice rest,fluids,bronchodilator for wheezing if you're prescribed one, c MD if worse ...Read more
