Vaping can cause throat irritation due to the inhalation of heated nicotine. Even though people that vape may find this pleasurable, it can still cause irritation. This is especially common in inexperienced or amateur vapers who may be using higher nicotine concentrations as they adjust to vaping. Additionally, some people may be sensitive to the ingredients in e-juice and can therefore experience a sore throat. To reduce this irritation, vapers can decrease their nicotine concentrations or switch to a throat-friendly e-liquid.
