Throat pain after eating hot chips, pain on swallowing. Taking gaviscon. Healing time required?

Hi, I ate a hot chip 3 nights ago, I felt it burn all the way down and was in a lot of pain. Ever since then I have been in a lot of pain when swallowing sliver, food and water. Do you know how long my asofogus will take to heal and whether I need to see a doctor? I have been taking gaviscon medicine but the pain isn t getting any better. Thanks.

thanks for your query
I think there is a mucositis due to burn in your throat
Take Syp Sucrafil 3 time a day, will protect the damaged mucosa and help to heal faster.
Also take betnesol gargles, will reduce the inflammation and pain.
also add some multivitamines perticularly Vit. C for better healing.
Thanking you
