    Voice problems and allergies?
    An_242115 posted:
    Hello...I am 30yrs old. I am having voice problems... hoarse voice, loss of voice, cracking of voice... had one vocal cord polyp removed in 2008. and it was fine after that but since this mid feb, i am having voice problems. I went to see many ENTs but they some say its a vocal cord nodule or on omeprazole..basic conversation is so difficult..i lost my job too. I was a college teacher. My voice was my asset. Someone please help..Could allergies be responsible for this? I am having nose block too. I have done my blood test for immunoglobulin E which shows a count of 598.5 IU/ml. My allergy specialist said if this count is high, to come to him for skin allergy testing which I will be going for.
