If your throat is feeling scratchy and hoarse, it's likely due to a cold or virus. In most cases, it will go away on its own. A hoarse throat is only caused for concern if it does not improve within three weeks.
- To relieve a hoarse throat, rest your voice and avoid straining your vocal cords by speaking excessively or yelling. Stay hydrated by drinking warm water or soothing herbal tea with honey to keep your throat moist. Gargle with warm saltwater several times a day to reduce swelling and discomfort. Use a humidifier or inhale steam from hot water to add moisture to the air and soothe your throat.
