Throat swelling, difficulty in swallowing after smoking for the first time. Suggestions?

Just recently, I had smoked my first entire length of a cigarette. Marlboro Black I believe. This was last friday and since then, I ve had some throat swelling and I have trouble swallowing because of minimal pain. I still have it. Do you know a treatment, or do you know if this is long-term.? I come from a family where smoking is moderate but hard to avoid. Secondhand, ofcourse. I m 16 years old. and a Male of about 122 pounds in body weight. with a height of 5 foot 8 inches.

you wrote malboro black I believe... what does that mean you do not know what did you smoke??
If its a normal ciggratte do not worry
now this can be just a reaction and will go off in a day or two.
you can do gargle with lukewarm water with saline.
Avoid any further smoking.
In doubt do reply
