I am a white man with no voice problems. I have to yell at my son forcefully for 5 min. It has been four days and my voice is hoarse. Any recommendations? Thank you.

Persistent hoarseness following an episode of vocal abuse/ overuse warrants a trip to an Ear, Nose, and Throat physician. In the meantime, rest your voice as much as possible, drink plenty of non-caffeinated fluids, and avoid any environmental irritants, such as smoke.
