In brief: Pharyngitis
The answer is "no.
" throat infections do not come from overuse of the vocal cords. Hoarseness may come from swelling and inflammation of the vocal cords with overuse, and this will make your voice sound just like it would if you had the viral upper respiratory infection called "laryngitis, " and your throat may ache as well deep down.
