Medication Summary

Drug therapy is not currently a component of the standard of care for laryngomalacia. In more than 99% of cases, the only treatment necessary is time.

The lesion gradually improves, and noises disappear by age 2 years in virtually all cases. See Treatment.

Acid suppression therapy may be considered in severe cases if gastroesophageal reflux is suspected.
