Jalapeno pepper should be handled with gloves on, no exceptions. I had 6 jalapeno peppers I was using in salsa, so before I began to prepare them, I looked for some gloves. I spent about 5 minutes and didnt find any so proceeded
After about 3 peppers, I thought, my, I sure do have alot of really sore burning cuts on my hands. I finished the last one and washed my hands thoroughly with soap. I then scratched and rubbed the very end of my nose, my hair
had been tickling me.
Then it started, the burning! The burning throbbing pain in my hands and nose! I thought, surely, if i wash my hands again, this will stop. So, after washing my hands again, I had some relief for about 5 minutes! OWWW!
Tried to walk it off, no luck. Tried olive oil, no luck. Milk, vinegar, Gojo, bleach (desperate). NOT one thing worked. I have to admit, the for the first 15 minutes after the Gojo, the did have little relief but then started
I had to take out my contacts that night, ouch. Woke up with hurting burning throbbing hands. Ouch. Hurt everytime I washed my hands in anything but COLD water, and we don't get cold water from the tap here in Arizona! This went
on for 2 and a 1/2 days! Anyway, my hands are better today but they still are very tender around my nails and pinky fingeres. I will NEVER do this again without gloves! Ever!
