Dude. I love you!
I was crying uncontrollably! Wish I’d known about the mustard deal sooner. Because of the ECQ, I cannot go the mall which is kilometers away from me
my hand burnt for 3 and a half hours. I will say he did wash his spit of with dish soap afterwards. I tried everything before finding this site. I’m pretty sure these jalapenos were from Satan himself. If you chop enough peppers routinely in cooking you get to the point that you won’t feel the burn. And I tried everything else before that. Hi Kendra, Thanks for the tip! Wow. I bought some in season Hatch New Mexico green chiles at my local grocery store, I opted for the one in the box labeled ‘hot’! Yippee for mustard!!!!! Boy, I made the mistake to rub my hand over my eye and a moment later my eye was on fire, so were my fingers! Except I had worn gloves while cutting the jalapenos, then took them off to finish my salsa. It WILL be the only thing that works. I’m so glad the mustard worked for her as well! I will need to do it again, I think, but it did give me some relief, but not until rinsed it off.
They only seemed to give relief for a little bit. Nope. Be sure to leave the oil on for a couple of hours for good results.
However, it’s also what makes them burn. It worked!! Please Log In or add your name and email to post the comment.
I cut and seeded cayenne peppers on Monday and my hands were finally not burning the next morning but something about hot tubs makes them start to feel on fire again. Thank you so much for this tip! But as I continued cooking, the tingling turned to a slight burning.
I’ll keep that in mind…just in case! You probably already know this if you’ve ever eaten spicy food, but water doesn’t help quell the heat. update – Thursday morning 4 days10 hours later and ever so slight feeling of peppers on one hand, the other is ok… they are a slight bit sore, like I played a few hours of tennis but otherwise I think this is the last of it… Wow.. NEVER AGAIN without gloves. I read that if I ran my hands through my hair it would help. When the burn is on your skin, you can apply lemon directly to the burn for instant relief.
I’m going for the French’s now!!!!!!¡!! I have learned not to chop peppers without gloves the hard way, as well. No good. Glad you found some relief! Thank you . O my it’s 11:23 pm no stores…. My 10 year old daughter had torn up a banana pepper and was was crying in pain . Starchy foods help get rid of that burning sensation you feel after eating jalapenos. . It is instant but not lasting. This was awesome! Yes! I knew better than to cut jalapeños without gloves, but figured it couldn’t be that bad. And all at once, I finally came across something I hadn’t tried yet. Thank you for sharing!!! Mustard worked!!!!!
THANK YOU! The website, “The Chile Man,” explains that "Hunan Hand" is sometimes called "Chile Willy." You have to see your doctor or contact the Poison Control Center if the pain persists after several hours of trying home remedies or you see blisters on your skin. Wow! of vinegar, mustard is a good option, but it’s the miracle of vinegar that saved your poor little fingers. Kendra, And then I had to throw out the sour cream. Thanks for sharing… mustard… who woulda thunk? You can counteract a jalapeno burn by drinking lemon juice.
I tried milk, ketchup, vinegar, toothpaste, mouthwash, yogurt, dish soap, bleach, salt, olive oil, calamine…..all recommended through blogs and posts online.
Nothing else even came close!!! I think I’ll take a god pain killer too! Now, I’m a tough cookie. He went to the nearest pharmacy and came home with camphorated oil.
Then I re-read all the success stories and your directions again in desperation and realized that it would take much longer than that to dissolve all the capsaicin that I subjected my hands to when attempting a recipe. – everybody is different with how their skin reacts to the chemicals in jalapenos, so feel free to give them all a try. (Maybe I should have soaked it?). The pain went to a 3 from a 10. Thank you ?? after i read this i found i had some honey mustard and tried on. I tried a few of the first remedies while reading this and kept going. I was cutting up jalapeños but that’s not how I got the burn. Thank you for the mustard tip. God bless you & God bless mustard ??
my fingers in vinegar (it’s not the vinegar in the mustard that does it), lemons, dish liquid, salt, tomatoes, milk, etc. I read this post about yellow mustard and it worked. I am an English woman living in France and was preparing our chillis for freezing today. A lot of good that does me now!
yep mustard it up! I canned Jalapenos for the first time the other day. I am so glad I found your blog. It took three applications of mustard and washing my hands with dish soap and cold water in between applications. So I guess for now I will just continue to hold on to my kids’ popsicles…lol GLOVES next time!!!
Can’t believe how relieved I feel. The difference with my situation is, I was downtown on new years eve walking around with some friends and to make a long story short, a group of people started fighting, I was near the brawl, and without ANY warning the police began spraying the 6 or 7 people with mace which is made from pepper extract plus some other torturous chemicals. I doused my hand with vegetable oil.
Then I had to wash my hands.
My wife just chopped up 3 banana peppers for soup… noticed not much of anything ’til taking a shower…then the burning set in, as described in all previous posts. He suffered so long, and he even had burn marks on his skin!
