In brief: Fluids & rest
A runny nose, body aches and laryngitis sound typical for flu symptoms.
Since flu's are due to viral infections and thus can't be treated with antibiotics, treatment is aimed at alleviating symptoms and maintaining the immune system. The latter includes fluids, hand washing, a multivitamin, and rest. One should seek the assistance of their doctor if the symptoms do not improve, or worsen.

In brief: Laryngitis
Hoarse voice is treated with voice rest.
Is that simple. May last 3-7 days. Post nasal drip is the main cause in your case. If hoarse voice last 4 weeks straight then you need to see ENT doctor.
