Hi and thanks for the query,As he is suffering from the condition for 5 days, he can wait for 24 hours but he should visit his physician on priority basis tomorrow so that thorough examination can be done and treatment can be started accordingly. Meanwhile steam inhalation, voice rest and lozenges can help.Let me know if you have further questions.Please do leave a positive rating by clicking on stars on top right corner.Wish him good health.
