Burning Pepper Fingers
Not sure this should be in Bath & Body. Feel free to move it.
I'd like to talk about how ****ty it when you get burning pepper fingers.
You know... like when you cut hot peppers and the oils make your fingers burn like a mother ****er for hours on end?
Last night I cut up some jalapenos but was careful to wash my hands right after because I've had the evil burn before and thought this would be good enough to prevent it. I thought I was in the clear, but about an hour or maybe more later my pinky finger started to get hot. I was ****ed, but it didn't seem as bad as the first time it happened to me, which was pure torture.
Then, after washing my face with hot water, my ring finger started to burn and then the tip of the middle finger. It had spread somehow? Even though I'd washed my hands several times.
I couldn't sleep with my hand under the blanket cause it hurt to damn much if it was in a hot area. I kept it in front of a fan instead ahaha. Any kind of pressure on the fingers causes them to heat up and before more irritated.
I didn't really try to cure it this time, since last time I tried pretty much everything. Milk, hand creams, ice, whatever.
What do you people use to cure the evil burn of hot peppers?
How long do you usually burn for? I'm going on 24 hours, but it's very mild right now.
