Having burning sensation in throat while swallowing cold drinks

I was sick 4 weeks ago with a cold. All my symptoms, such as sneezing coughing and sore throat , were gone within 4 days HOWEVER whenever I swallow something cold the right side of my throat stings like i have an open cut and and after the initial burning it feels like it swells up for a while. This has been happening for all 4 weeks. Swallowing normally or swallowing warm liquids are fine. What could be wrong??

hello ashley
Your symptoms are follow up of sore throat. if you are not fine within few days then get a doc and a local examination is must, to rule out any tonsillitis, local ulcer etc. you can try turmeric powder once a day mixed in hot milk+sugar, this is a famous and effective household remedy for sore throat.
have a good health
