All unripe figs will cause this burning sensation. The cells in the figs skin are sharp until the fruit is fully ripe. It doesn't sound like this was an allergic reaction, as this is a very common experience when eating fresh figs not fully ripened. Despite the fact that they may have been sweet, your description sounds as though they could and should have been even riper and sweeter.
