What increases my risk for chronic laryngitis?

Since chronic laryngitis is usually caused by conditions outside of the body, your risk may be increased depending on several factors. People who smoke, have recurring respiratory infections, drink frequently, or have acid reflux disease are more likely to have these factors lead to chronic laryngitis. People who use their voices in excess, like singers or those who work in loud environments, have a higher risk. Bulimia also increases your risk for chronic laryngitis.
