Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
This is Dr. David
I am sorry you feel worse and have lost your voice.
you could be having some severe swelling of your throat
with severe viral or bacterial infections, you can have severe pharyngitis infection of your throat which can make it very painful to swallow and speak.
are you able to drink hot tea with lemon and honey? that could help.
you should buy some over the counter Cepacol throat numbing sprays which you can buy at the drug store which can help numb up your throat.
you can also try sucking on throat lozenges which can help
you can also go back to the hospital or A&E department and have a doctor look in your throat and take a throat swab culture to check for strep throat and throat infections as well
gargling with salt water could help
