  • I went to school with laryngitis but I am not sure how long I stayed home first and I wasnt really close to anyone. I know I didnt share drinks or anything with anyone. Check out webmd it might say.

  • I don't know if that is contagious or not but if it is then When you breastfeed and get sick your body responds by putting more white blood cells into the milk to help boost there immune systems. It better to breast feed while sick then to take them off til you get well.

  • Yes, it's contagious. It's the adult version of croup. It passes just like a cold, so take precautions!
