Users report fewer cravings, less irritability
Symptom Checker and Care Guides will guide you through the decisions to make and steps to take so that you feel better fast.
Break the throat-clearing habit. Instead, swallow twice to help move mucus along.
Improve your air quality. Quit smoking and stay away from secondhand smoke and other sources of pollution.
Stay hydrated. Try taking small sips of water throughout the day to keep the mucus from building up.
Turn the volume down. If you're prone to temporary hoarseness, you may be talking too loudly.
Use a cool-mist humidifier to keep the air moist. A steamy shower also will give you warm, moist air to breathe.
Know when to visit the doctor. If hoarseness lasts more than two weeks, or you experience a complete loss of your voice for more than a few days, call your doctor.
