Wearing Mask Causes Dryness and Irritation in Respiratory Tract.

Masks have become an essential part of the new normal. Wearing a mask also has some negative effects. We often breathe through our mouth while wearing a mask we may feel dryness and irritation in our respiratory tract over time.

While wearing a mask, we speak louder than usual. This irritates our vocal cords. Moreover, removing and wearing a mask frequently can cause throat infections and consequently a sore throat.

Over-the-counter throat lozenges can be used to relieve dryness, and irritation in our respiratory tract, and sore throat, due to mask use.
