1 doctor weighed in:

I swallowed an Advil 2 years ago without water and it got stuck in my throat and burned bad for at least a day. Will this have resulted in a stricture of my esophagus? Or would it have just healed? Does it only take one burn to cause a stricture?

In brief: Usually not

Usually esophageal strictures result from severe trauma or alkali burns(e.
g. Draino) of the esophagus or repetitive injury of the esophagus.
