Dear Dr. Rea,
What causes your throat to go husky or hoarse upon exposures to chemicals? Is it dangerous? My glands also swell up and sometimes find it hard to swallow. Is this a sign of analyphlaxis and if so, what do you recommend?

Dr. Rea’s response:
It may be laryngeal edema, which could be dangerous if it progresses too far. You need to find the triggering agent, which is usually a food.
