Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The protrusion like the tongue on the throat wall you see is probably the uvula. Uvula is soft tissue that hangs on the upper wall of the back of your throat and is a normal anatomical structure that is shared by everyone.
The feeling of heat in the throat can indeed occur due to inflammation in the throat. Inflammation itself can occur due to many possibilities. The most common cause is an infection by a virus, can also be caused by other infections such as bacterial infections (less frequent) or fungi (very rare), can be caused by irritation (for example due to inhalation of certain chemicals that irritate the throat), allergies, trauma or injury (for example pierced with sharp food, or inhaling hot smoke), can also be caused by GERD or stomach acid disease. If you have checked yourself into a doctor and have been examined directly by your doctor, then you can try separately to consume the medicine given by your doctor first in accordance with your doctor's recommendations. If the drug has run out and your symptoms have not improved, do a check back to the doctor so that you can evaluate the progress of your disease.
Some things you can do right now:
try to eat soft foods first if you have difficulty swallowing pain or pain
Avoid eating foods that are too spicy and too sour for a while
Avoid excessive exposure to air pollution
Use an air humidifier when you sleep or work in an air-conditioned room
drink more water
avoid talking / singing too much
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
