    Yikes, kam.

    Sounds more like a Habenero effect :-(


    I have been told that things with fat and protein help the most, like your yogurt, or milk---keep applying.


    Sorry you're going through this misery. Here's a link that might help you:

    BTW, water/ice actually makes it worse!

    [quote]

    Capsaicin is a nonpolar molecule, and is therefore hydrophobic. Consequently, drinking water to reduce the burning caused by the molecule is ineffective, as the nonpolar capsaicin is unable to dissolve in the polar water molecules, and is instead spread across the surface of the mouth. This works by the same principle that causes oil and water to separate.


    Instead, consuming foods high in fats and oils, such as milk or bread and butter, will help alleviate the burning. The lipophilic capsaicin is able to mix freely with the fats in the food and is removed from the surface of the mouth. Alcohol and alcoholic beverages also dissolve capsaicin due to the solvent characteristics of ethanol. Of course, over time the capsaicin will dissipate on its own.</blockquote>

    Still burning but the pain&#39;s at a managable level now. Repeated soakings in vinegar (cold from the fridge) alternating with baking soda and milk paste seem to have died it down to a slow burn rather than an intense OMG-kill-me-now fire.


    Note to self - fresh and organic farmer&#39;s market peppers apparently have MORE BITE than the sort you buy at the grocery store. Lesson: Learned.

    Maybe try rubbing coconut oil on it, if fats help?

    Eating lots but still hungry? Eat more fat. Mid-day sluggishness? Eat more fat. Feeling depressed or irritable? Eat more fat. People think you've developed an eating disorder? Eat more fat... in front of them.

    my hands were on fire


    try some oil but honestly for me the pain was happening for like... a few hours and then I just went to sleep while my hands were still tingly


    but it was the most terrible thing


    i tried oil, milk, vinegar, water, whatever


    it was honestly ridiculous...
