Winter is upon us and sickness is too. I have had an artist with long-lasting hoarseness due to these viruses.
You must go on immediate total voice rest and get into a doctor so that you can be treated with medication quickly. The hoarseness is effecting voices up to 8 weeks!
Be patient with your voice and rest it constantly. Drink at least 8 fluid ounces of water to stay hydrated, get plenty of sleep, and eat well-balanced meals. The main advice I have is don’t panic and stress, so you are able to heal quickly.
Take singing easy when you start back after being hoarse, gradually move the voice back to full use slowly.
