What cause burning feeling when swallowing saliva?

I have a fiery throat. It kind of burns when I swallow saliva but not when I drink water or anything at room temperature. When I breathe through my mouth it burns as well. It s been like this for two/three days. Iveven taken allergy and cold medicine but fell asleep so Imuch not sure if it did anything. My temperature is also regular.

Thanks for writing in to HCM.

It could be due to allergic condition or dry climate.

Kindly drink lots of fluids to keep yourself hydrated. Also you can drink lemon juice to increase salivation and keep the mouth moist. Kindly take the antiallergic medications along with antibiotics. You shall get well soon.

Hope this answers your query .
