In brief: You mean
Acute throat swelling sensation may be related to infection, reflux, or allergy.
Stay hydrated- plenty of water. Salt water gargles, using a humidifier, and otc pain meds should help. Avoid alcohol, spicy, and citrus foods/ drinks. Consider otc antihistamine e g benadryl, (diphenhydramine) and reflux meds e g prilosec. See a doctor if symptoms don't improve in a few days or if you have breathing difficulty.
