Q.

Husky voice

My daughter seems to be developing a very husky voice is this ok?
She doesn' t have a cold, cough or running nose of any sort, she is happy as normal.
she is however teething her top 6 teeth and some days is off her food but loves her cold desserts as in yoghurt, fruit puree etc
I just noticed over the last few days her voice has gone quite husky as if she is losing her voice.

Paediatrician

This could be a form of croup which is an infection of the larynx or voicebox. If she has a cough or her breathing is noisy when she sleeps she should be seen by her paediatrician.
