Brief Answer:
Try eating and observe only!

Detailed Answer:

If it is only the skin, then it will for sure go down if it for real got stuck. eating will help this. However, most often these sensations are not accompanied by a physical food particle stuck but just sensations.

In all, eat and drink and monitor only for now. If t persists, then we will go down and look into the throat with a light source to take care of this.

I wish you well.
