How can ice damage my vocal cords?

Eating too much ice can damage the vocal cords by constricting the voice box, which can cause you to lose your voice. The vocal cords get a little harder, making it difficult for you to hit high notes.

Its very possible that you have damaged them slightly. You can always try some over the counter medicine for sore throats and give it a few days to see if your voice recovers. If the problem persists after a week of resting your voice you should go see you local doctor and get referred to a throat specialist and have your vocal cords checked out for signs of damage.

Can your vocal chords stay permanently thickened?

It will stay that way if you do not care for it carefully. If you keep on doing the harsh things on your vocal cords, it will not have much time to actually recover and this will be rather risky for your health. As soon as you realize you are experiencing some problems, make sure that you have it diagnosed and you take the necessary precautions seriously. You have to follow the advice of your doctor in terms of what to avoid.

I don't know if I'm damaging my vocal cords or not?

Okay, I'm a singing tenor, and at first when I started singing, I couldn't hit c5, but now my limit is around G5. I like signing like Mitch Grassi. One day I was singing, and f5-g5 is a bit of a push, but it doesn't hurt, but in my throat it felt like a tube was opening, and it happened again the next day, but on the other side. Actually I was able to open my throat more, and my singing was easier, but I don't want to hurt my vocal cords. It's only happened twice. Though, I've been getting back into singing after puberty (I'm a boy; but I guess you kind of knew since I said I'm a tenor). My voice was very high when I sang, and it still kind of is, when I get in front of people, especially before puberty. I'm still adjusting. What could be happening? It's been around a good 6 months or so since I first started singing again.
