I picked all of these lovely hot peppers from my Gardens last October and then cut them up.  I handled all of them with bare hands and after I was done I felt like I had a horrible chemical burn that just stung very badly.

I tried Aloe Vera, several creams, cold water, ice, etc but got the most relief from soaking my hands in whole milk!

More Tips: use veggie oil, rubbing alcohol (or vodka), or a baking soda paste

Better Tip: wear food gloves when handling a massive quantity of hot peppers!
