Patient : Hi, I have a bad throat and am taking medication. Besides the medications I did some saltwater gargling last night! Today my voice is almost gone! I think I used way too much salt for gargling! I think my vocal chords are dried up and inflamed. Do you think my voice problem is because of those gargles? If yes, then should I wait till tommorow to see if I get my voice back to normal or contact a doctor? "I don't have any pain today, that means the antibiotics I am taking for throat infection are working very well"
