Hoarseness. Of course, if your throat is ill, your voice will change. Hoarseness appears at the same time with pain in your throat and lasts until you lose your voice at all. If you’re ill with laryngitis, your throat will be dry and scratchy, that is why your voice will sound with bright hoarseness. The voice generally becomes very weak and sounds just like another person. Try to drink lots of warm fluids and treat it with any other methods to make it smoother and moister.
