Is it normal for spicy foods to make your throat feel mildly swollen/inflamed?

I noticed that when I eat spicy foods, the burning sensation in my throat also makes it feel as if it’s slightly inflamed. Not swollen in the sense that I can’t breathe, but more like when you’ve had cold hands and then when they warm up they ‘swell’ a bit and get hot.

Is this a normal reaction to spicy foods, and is it similar to why your hands do this too?
