I missed that part. If milk doesn't do that trick, then I don't know what will.

Are you SURE they were Jalapeños? Jalapeño are pretty mild.
Or maybe you just have some really sensitive skin.

I just googled hot pepper burning hands remedies, I found one that suggests washing with HOT water, scrubbing each finger, including under the nails, with a toothbrush. (or any brush)

You could try that

That's what I thought. Habaneros maybe?... they'll burn you with a Scoville unit of about 250,000.

A jalapeno has about 4,500 Scoville unit rating.

Salt ...

In Guam we use salt to sooth the hotness in our mouth, lips, tongue. This will neutralized the pepper. Not sure if it will work on your hands.

Also try lemon juice. We use lemon juice to neutralize the smell on our hands when handling freshly killed game. Again, not sure if lemon juice will neutralize the burning sensation on your hand.

I dice up jalapenos all the time and habs never wear gloves never have issues with them burning my fingers. Sounds like some need to toughen up a bit and use thier hands for something other then flying toy helicopters

I did sleep pretty well only woke up about 3 times. My fingers Thank God feel better.

Well that is what the sign at grocery store said.
I do have sensitive skin that may have contributed to it.

This has nothing to do with the event last night but often things people find to be mild I think are flaming hot. However when they think something is hot I often find it to be mild. Maybe my wires are crossed.

Well I am for sure glad it is over. The only thing I could think could be worse is child birth. I fortunately have a few more years to toughen up more before that becomes a reality.

Honestly, I didn't sleep. I tossed and turned constantly. And I cried. Only because before I knew what was going on I touched my face and eyes.

And yes, Jalenpenos WILL do that to you. It's the oil in them. (for those naysayers) I don't have sensitive skin, but they say any more than 2 with bare hands can have this effect.

I'm glad u are feeling better...I tried everything I could think of at the time...wish I would have known about the Milk of Magnesia at the time, but I don't know that even that would have helped.

Everytime I cut them now, I wear gloves...not taking any chances on that misery again.

Funny!!! I was reading through the post and decided to post but DooD beat me to it.
I was thinking exactly what he mentioned. Either they weren't jalapeños or you have very sensitive skin.
I wear surgical gloves when chopping Habaneros but jalapeños are quite mild (at least compared to habaneros).
I have a couple funny stories but they are R rated.
Anyway, I would try washing them thorougly with plenty water and soap, I tried milk lemon juice but in the end nothing seemed to make the pain go away.

It would be interesting to fing out if it was burning from sensitive skin or some sort of localized allergic reaction to them. Because if it was histamine reaction it might get worse every time, anyway I guess you'll be wearing gloves next time

Glad your feeling better.

And Dood! Seriously?? What the...?!?!??
I had an incident a few years ago where my balls came in contact with some pretty intense hot sauce (similar to Dave's Insanity Sauce).
Its a long story.
I found relief by dipping them in a bowl of milk.
I an trying to think of senerios that would make sense...

Drunk at a Frat party?

Girl friend on a dare?

Angry Girl freind?

Angry gay lover?

Sounds like a great Jerry Springer episode!
Or a chemistry experiment going horriably wrong...

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

More like a really, really mean joke at my expense and to the amusement of others.

More like a joke Johnny Knoxville would play on WeeMan in an episode of Jackass.

try the taquilla on your hands

I had heard that it will cut the oils of the Jalapenos... the remedy was for your mouth.. but it may work on your hands.. Milk will soothe while in contact but does not cut the oils of the pepper...

In life there is no spacebar!

Dood,
Ouch! I hope you got revenge on them!

And in reply to the origanial poster, Since it has allready been over 24hrs,
Right now the capsaian from the peppers is already absorbed into your skin, so the topical remidies really wont help other then the sugestion of keeping your hands cool with cold water or ice packs, and dont wash with hot water for a few days, that can and probably will make it worse.

The capsaicin is oil soluble, so you can use vegetable oil, yogurt, or even butter and that should help dissolve any capsaicin on the skin for next time it happens.

And should any of you guys ever get pepper spayed, these remidies will help!
