Laryngitis Hoarseness and irritation of the throat are typical symptoms of laryngitis. Occasionally, those suffering from laryngitis will lose their voice completely. Both pathogens and vocal overload (e.g. in singers and teachers) can play a role in developing laryngitis. Consistent voice rest has top priority during treatment.

Laryngitis: causes

When identifying the causes of laryngitis, it is important to differentiate between acute and chronic laryngitis. 

Acute laryngitis – possible causes:

  • Viral infections of the nose, sinuses or tonsils
  • Bacterial infection (often bacterial superinfection, which develops on top of a viral infection)
  • Voice overuse in professionals, such as teachers or singers
  • Inhalation of irritant gases

Chronic laryngitis – possible causes:

  • Voice overuse
  • Nicotine consumption
  • Increased mouth breathing (when nasal breathing is impaired)

Laryngitis: symptoms

Above all, pronounced hoarseness ("croaking" voice) or even complete voice loss are typical of laryngitis. A dry burning or scratchy sensation in the throat as well as coughing and pain when attempting to swallow or speak are possible too. 

Those suffering from chronic laryngitis often have the sensation of having a foreign body in the throat and constantly feel the need to clear their throat.

Laryngitis: Treatment

There are various treatments for laryngitis.

These include:

  • Consistent voice rest (do not speak, whisper or clear your throat)
  • Abstain from smoking
  • Take mucolytic cough remedies
  • Inhalation
  • If necessary, antibiotics to treat bacterial pathogens (these require a prescription from the doctor)

Supportive treatment:
Fast pain relief with Dorithricin®

Dorithricin® is suitable for the supportive treatment of laryngitis, providing quick and effective relief from sore throat. That’s because Dorithricin® contains a proven local analgesic. Thanks to accurate dosing (“as much as necessary and as little as possible”), the pain is alleviated without causing unpleasant numbness.
You should know: In addition to the local analgesic, Dorithricin® contains two other active ingredients which mutually complement each other in their antibacterial effect. The natural anti-infective tyrothricin plays a central role in this process: In addition to its excellent antibacterial effects, it also has local immunostimulatory properties. In combination with the other ingredients, it fights back effectively against typical "cold viruses".1 The unique active ingredient formula in Dorithricin® effectively relieves sore throat in several ways:
