  • doesn't sound like laryngitis... that's just your voice goes bye bye for a week or two. I had no symptoms other than no voice with it.

    sounds like some other virus or infection. I'd get him check out just in case it's an infection so they can give him antibiotics for it. if they tell you it's a virus, just treat the symptoms
