I have lost my voice - sore throat, painful cough, no fever, nasal drip, mild stuffy nose but runny eyes.
Thought it might be allergies. Looked with a flashlight and mirror into my throat and there
is a white spot on tonsil but rest of mouth is red - no other white spots. Thank you.

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
Mild seasonal allergies and no on the sinuitis.
Thank you very much for your input.
From the information you provided it appears that you might be having acute allergic rhinitis complicated with laryngitis and hence husky voice .In this case your vocal cards might be somewhat swollen and you can't speak properly.I believe you need antiallergics like Monteleukast , Fexofenadine , with a any cough syp. Containing Dextromethorphan like Halls etc. an anti inflammatory like Advil and in case you have fever too a brad spectrum antibiotic like Cipro also.Please use plenty of hot liquids like soups , lukewarm water with honey and green tea with cardamom and aniseeds.Please see GP so that you could get the medications and assessment .
Hope i have answered your question.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
