What is the remedy for burning in the esophagus post eating extremely hot food ?

I burned my esophagus with piece of microwaved enchilada (it felt like a hot coal going down the left side of the inside of my chest ) That was two days ago it didn t seem to hurt the rest of the day it happened but the next day and today it seems to be hurting progressively worse. (I m still able to eat and drink but not without annoying pain .) I m wondering if i should be seeing a doctor.
