I came down with a bad cold, thereafter a bad cough and lost my voice. This happened 4 wks ago, since had seen a GP was put on a 5 days course of antibiotics. Last Wed, revisit the GP though the voice has come back, but very hoarse. He prescibed a 5 days course of Prednisolone... Today still very hoarse. Pls advise.

Persistent hoarseness after resolution of an upper respiratory infection warrants an evaluation by an Ear, Nose, and Throat physician.
