Brief Answer:
Supportive care only with some advil

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking

I read your question and i understand your concern. Painful swallowing and sore throat following drinking something too hot might have caused the pain. Just do some salt water gargles frequently, take advil for the pain and keep the diet soft and mostly fluids. Prefer warm comforting beverages like green tea, herbal tea mixed with honey and see if it helps. This feeling will subside in a day or two. No worries.

I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and dont forget to close the discussion please.
