So my wife, in all her infinite wisdom, cut up some Jalepenos without gloves and now her hands burn. Does the ChiefsPlanet collective have any advice for her?

I know milk helps when you eat them. Maybe try washing hands with milk? I don't know.

I do that shit all the time, not only chop but de-seed serrano peppers for chili, and ALWAYS end up taking out my contacts afterwards. It burns like satan's wet fart, and makes the contacts unusable the next day.


From Wiki:

Treatment after exposure
The primary treatment is removal from exposure. Contaminated clothing should be removed and placed in airtight bags to prevent secondary exposure. Capsaicin could be washed off the skin using soap, shampoo, or other detergents, or rubbed off with oily compounds such as vegetable oil, paraffin oil, petroleum jelly (Vaseline), creams, or polyethylene glycol. Plain water, as well as home remedies such as vinegar, bleach, sodium metabisulfite, or topical antacid suspensions are ineffective in removing capsaicin.

Burning and pain symptoms can be effectively relieved by cooling, e.g., from ice, cold water, cold bottles, cold surfaces, or a flow of air from wind or a fan. In severe cases, eye burn might be treated symptomatically with topical ophthalmic anesthetics; mucous membrane burn with lidocaine gel. Capsaicin-induced asthma might be treated with nebulized bronchodilators or oral antihistamines or corticosteroids.[30]

Damn man, I feel her pain. I did that once, the only thing that helped me was keeping a bowl of ice water next to me for the next few hours and occasionally dipping my hand in it. It's even more fun when you unwittingly wipe your eyes with your fingers.

The embarrassment of walking into the ER with your junk dangling in a coffee mug full of milk, would be to much to go on living.

It's not bad. She's not spazing out or anything, but she is telling me about it.

That's my guess.

I don't think she wiped her eyes (or cooter), but she did laugh at your avatar.

Oh good Gawd no!

If Mrs Bwana is handling Jalapeno peppers, her hands don't get in range of Wally and the twins. :shake:

Use a heavy detergent soap like dishwashing liquid. Its gonna burn till you scrub the capsaicin molecules out of your skin... it'll burn for days if you don't.

I'm on my way to the store right now to get fresh chilies for a marinade - I learned the capsaicin thing the hard way... always wear gloves now...

Time heals all wounds. Tell her not to rub her eyes or masturbate. Lemon juice might also help.

Dissolve with alcohol (isopropyl/rubbing) then wash thoroughly with dishwashing soap.
