These symptoms refers to a viral infection causing severe soreness of throat and inflamed vocal cords ,it takes time to treat a virus.
Try focusing on salt water gargling,betadine with water gargling,vitamin c intake and ginger,anise warm drinks,keep her well hydrated ,and avoid speaking or being subjected to air current with open mouth ..

this does seem something more than just infection.
May be her vocal cords are affected and inflammed.
A bronchoscopy and an MRI of the neck should be done to confirm the diagnosis.

The symptoms that she is facing can be however due to laryngitis but as she does not have any other symptoms and it is also persistent since long therefore it can be related to other causes like vocal cord nodules or cysts, vocal fold cysts etc.

You should get a Laryngoscopy done for confirmation of the cause, so that appropriate treatment, medical or surgical can be advised depending on the condition..

Hope this information helps..

Bloody stool is a red flag needs more investigations
