Sorry for your sufferings.

I will put my opinion regarding the issue.

Hot soup has irritated your throat.

It will take time to go away.

You can take antacid, do not take water along with.

It will have a soothing effect.

If the symptoms persists, the consultation with doctor will be needed to get an examination.

I hope this information helps.

Happy to assist, if you need any further clarification.

Best wishes.

Gaviscon, Maalox liquid can be taken.

Rarely it can cause severe damage.

If antacid does not relieve, you should have check in ER.
