Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
You seem concerned by cold sensation in your throat when you breathe from your nose.
It might be that you have got some viral infection from the droplets suspended in air and that is causing this odd cold feeling in your throat.
You must consult your ENT doctor for definitive diagnosis as the same is not possible online.
Hope this helps. Take care.
Note: This post is not to emphasise final diagnosis as the same cannot be made online and is aimed just to provide medical information and no treatment suggested above be taken without face to face consultation with health care professional.
