Complications of laryngitis

There are several complications of untreated and long-term laryngitis:

Chronic cough

One of the main complications of chronic laryngitis is a relentlessly chronic cough which does not produce any mucous (dry cough). While it is not serious in itself, it is irritating to the throat tissue to be constantly coughing.


Extended time of loss of voice

Another of the main complications of chronic laryngitis is loss of voice for an extended period beyond a few days. If the larynx becomes really inflamed from the underlying factor which caused the laryngitis, then this can be exacerbated and continue to occur.
