I have a throaty talk/yell right now from cold, what is the best remedy for a sore throat and an altered voice?

Practice excellent vocal hygiene when you are experiencing hoarseness and sore throat as a result of an upper respiratory infection. Basics of vocal hygiene include adequate hydration, vocal conservation, and avoidance of environmental irritants such as smoke.

Best of luck to you!
