In brief: Strict voice rest
Strict voice rest will usually lead to resolution of hoarseness within 24 hours.
If you must speak avoid whispering as this puts more strain on vocal cords than attempting to speak in a normal voice. If hoarseness persists despite strict voice rest then evaluation by a physician is indicated.
