In brief: Nasal saline/fluids

Sometimes viral illnesses can cause a raspy voice.
If there is still nasal congestion, gently removing the mucus with a bulb syringe and infant nasal saline drops and keeping him well hydrated may help this symptom. Monitor his temperature and notifying his doctor for continued symptoms or fever to re evaluate. Prmg fax 8582599689 for ?S.
