Dear Martha

If you did not respond to the antibiotics, and that one in particular, your GP must refer you to an ENT specialist.
You need an examination of the larynx to make a diagnosis. It is impossible to speculate as to a specific cause, the examination will determine that.


The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition. You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical exmanication, diagnosis and formal advice.
