Doctor: Welcome to Ask The Doctor. We are here to help you.If you have aspirated your food with such an apparent bruise as s een in photograph, you require evaluation as it can cause Aspiration Pneumonitis.I would advise you to get:1. Upper GI Endoscopy2. Chest X-ray.For symptomatic relief, you can take Syrup Digene. Also, you can take a combination of Pantoprazole and Domperidone.If you are coughing, then you need to go to ER now.I hope it helps.Stay Healthy
