Following the procedure, your child may have a dry or sore throat. You may offer your child clear liquid after you return home. This may help soothe the throat.
Acetaminophen (Tylenol, Tempra, Panadol) may be given for a sore throat. Your child may also have a hoarse voice or cough. This should be mild and go away soon. If you would like, you may use a humidifier at home.
Your child may continue with the same symptoms they had before the procedure. However, if your child displays any serious changes, or if the symptoms increase, you should call your otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat, or ENT) doctor immediately.
