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? $\endgroup$

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.
