Stopped smoking cigarettes. Using e cigarette. Sore, swollen throat. Due to e cigarette?

Hello I have stopped smoking cigarettes for 3 weeks now and have used e cigarettes as an alternative. After 2 weeks I have now developed a very sore and swollen throat . I can t eat or drink anything without extreme discomfort. Is this due to the e cigarette? I have stopped using the e cig since my throat got so sore. Should I go to my doctor or will it clear up on it s own? Thank you.
