hi since i started teaching i keep on losing my voice frequently at any sign of cold. does any body else get that. i dont have to cough loudly to lose my voice, it just happens when i get a cold. i know teaching have some thing to do with that. i never use to lose my voice before. had very bad class in my first year, been teaching for 4 years. this year since january i have lost my voice twice, lasting 5 days. doctors not been useful. what can i do to help me from losing my voice that easily when i get a cold. i dont really shout when teaching, but as you know teaching involves lot of talking. does anyone out there have the same problem as me. also continuing teaching with husky voice, am i distorying my vocal cords forever.
