Cool liquids: Scalding your throat after eating is uncomfortable. If it is severe, you are having difficulty swallowing, breathing, there is swelling you need to be seen asap. If it is uncomfortable, this will take a few days to heal. You should stick with liquids b/c they are less likely to stick, cooler liquids will help and avoid acidic food since it will sting; liquid Lidocaine given by your md can help. ...Read more

Hopefully you have: Done the basics: remove clothes covering the burn, treat with cool running water. No creams, ointments, etc as these may increase likelihood of infection. Try to leave open to air, but keep clean. Use dry, non-adhesive, non-fluffy sterile dressing if blister bursts. Use OTC pain killers.

I swallowed burning hot soup two days ago and scalded my throat. It is still very painful, difficult to swallow & speak. Is there anything I can do?

See doctor: You should see your doctor, as you may need some treatment depending upon the severity of the burns. Bland diet, no hard or crunchy foods (chips, toast, pretzels, etc.), lots of fluids. No very hot (temp.) or spicy foods / liquids. Warm salt water rinses / gargles may help sooth this. No anesthetics, as they will likely irritate it and / or allow you to eat harmful foods. No mouthwash. Good luck. ...Read more

A painful lesson: You are discovering how bad you can feel when you take way too much of these pills. It is very unlikely that you will die, but it is apparent that you feel pretty awful. Don't do it again. This is true of many easily available pills. Do seek good psychotherapy. It may feel like life is bad, but it can be better if you learn better ways to live. Go to an ER if you feel worse!! Best wishes. ...Read more

Dr. Can check again: Throat symptoms can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or other virus (antibiotics usually not used), allergies or irritants, sinusitis, stomach reflux when asleep, etc... Usually a person sees the doctor if the throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep). Mononucleosis and some other infections can also cause sore throat. ...Read more
