Coughing. As in the case of a simple cold, coughing is one of those symptoms everybody is familiar with. But if you have laryngitis your coughing will be more intense than in the case of a simple cold. This symptom is one of those main ones and most obvious, but people often treat it as just a chill. But you should be careful when you’re coughing, and it sounds more like a barking or any other brutal sound.
