It’s basically called a throat hit. This is the feeling of a burning sensation at the back of your throat and there are many reasons it happens.
Switching to vaping from smoking
People who have been smoking the traditional tobacco cigarette for a long time and switch to vaping, the e-juice might be the thing causing their throat to hurt. Basically, you are used to nicotine but the e-juices usually have lower amounts of it as compared to the traditional tobacco cigarette, or none at all, and what the user experiences are nicotine withdrawal.
However, there is no need to worry. Throat ache usually happens as a result of nicotine withdrawal and will decrease in intensity as the days pass.
Sometimes, the vaping juice has finished or is left in very less quantity in the vaping tank, but vapers tend to smoke out of habit. This causes them to feel the sensation of a dry hit, which is basically an uneasy, burning feeling at the back of the throat and is quite uncomfortable and annoying. However, this issue resolves itself within a while and you do not need to worry about it much.
Large amounts of propylene glycol

The easy solution to this is to take care of your overall health, stay hydrated, and change your vape type of the e-juice you smoke.
These were a few reasons why you could get a sore throat or a burning sensation in your throat after you vape. However, if it doesn’t subside in a few hours or days at most, it is probably not vaping related and you might need to check with a doctor to rule out any other causes.
