In general, laryngitis is seen with at least the symptoms of a viral infection like a cold or the flu, or with more dramatic infections like sinusitis or bronchitis. It's not a serious problem and usually resolves in a few days. A humidifier, plenty of liquids, and not talking very much can help. If it were to persist for more than a week, you should see a doctor about it.
