Apart from pain when swallowing, there's also a persistent feeling of throat 'burning' in the same area.

What causes it and why does it feel that way?

  • $\begingroup$ Could you describe the burning sensation some more? Is it located the same spot as the soreness? $\endgroup$ – Brian Feb 12 '13 at 12:45
  • $\begingroup$ @Brian well yes, pretty much the same. $\endgroup$ – Michael Pankov Feb 12 '13 at 12:59

If you've been sneezing or coughing a lot it is probably micro abrasions in the throat. I don't recognize any other burning sensation.

I guess it is because the throat is sore, thus probably inflammated. Inflammations are hot. Though, I am not a doctor.
