Laryngeal papplomatosis usually causes singular lesions. Sicca syndrome doesn't fit at all. Candidiasis would affect the immunocompromised and would be described as a raised white area. Tuberculous laryngitis is incredibly rare in these modern days of antituberculous chemotherapy. Singer's nodules (vocal fold nodules) typically present as a hoarse voice in childhood and thus fits.
