Questions and Answers
How do you know if your vocal cords are rubbing against each other?
When your vocal cords are rubbing abnormally against each other, you would notice some changes in your voice. It would either sound rather raspy or a bit thinner than your usual voice. It may also give you the sensation of having phlegm in your throat, even when there is none.
If you want a more precise diagnosis as to whether or not there is something wrong with your vocal cords, you may want to see a throat specialist who will do a scanning of your throat via a small camera that will be inserted through your mouth to see the movements of your vocal cords as you speak.
Vocal chords that rub with each other is okay unless it hurts. When it hurts, it only means one thing, it means that there are nodules or blisters forming around the area which makes it painful when getting rubbed together.You can do the following to get rid of it:
- gargle warm salt water by mixing half a teaspoon of table salt in a glass of warm water, gargle for at least 3 minutes, 3 times a day
- rest your voice
If your vocal chords seem to get worse even after trying what I mentioned above, please seek a doctor so they can check what is wrong and give you medication.
I have extreme trouble with my vocal cords?
I am a teacher and my job is to teach very young kids. I cannot continue with my teaching as after 2/ 3 days of teaching, my voice gets so hoarse that it gets extremely difficult for me to speak. In such a situation, it takes a lot of pressure to speak and I find it extremely difficult to speak in routine. On phone, my voice cannot be heard more than whispers. I don't know how to continue with my teaching.
