Tracheitis – a singer’s worst nightmare?

It is without doubt that trauma to the vocal folds is a singer’s worst nightmare. Burst veins, nodules etc. is really bad news and can end a career if not treated with utmost care. Thankfully I never had to deal with the latter but what I had to face, very recently, was a terrible influenza which left me with tracheitis, which is a much dreaded inflammation of the wind pipe. My excellent doctor put me on antibiotics which dealt with the bacterial infection but what can one do with the irritation that the infection leaves behind in the trachea? Not much I am afraid. Steam inhalations and pulmicort (inhaled steroid)  will help control the cough but it can have the side effect of leaving you with candida (fungus) in your larynx that will also impair your singing. Loads of alcohol and caffeine free fluids is strongly recommended and cold air is a definite “no no” during recovery.  Humidifying the air where you live is also imperative especially in the bedroom.

In the end it boils down to keeping the immune system as  healthy as possible. Probiotics, good sleep and exercise will do wonders to prevent sickness or to speed up recovery if one succumbs to a bug.

Last but not least NEVER self medicate and always seek out the opinion of a trusted doctor!
