5 Tips On How To Deal With Hot Pepper Burns




If you’ve ever made the mistake of cutting a pepper bare handed, you know how painful the experience can be. Washing pepper with the bare hands can also spread burning, stinging, painful sensations all over your hands.

Here are 5 ways on how to deal with painful pepper burns:


Milk has been proven by many to be very effective. Pour yourself a glass of milk to blot your eye with or fill a bowl to submerge larger body parts, like your hands. Keep the burning area submerged for as long as you can, or until the sensation subsides. This is the only alternative method to water that we recommend using for your eyes.


 Yogurt does an excellent job at calming a fiery pepper burn, on your tongue or your skin. Spoon some yogurt into a bowl and submerge your hands into the creamy product. This might require keeping your hands submerged in the yogurt for up to an hour.

3. Red Oil:

From experience, red oil is very effective in relieving from the sting of hot pepper. Take a little oil and rub it all over the affected areas. The pain should subside within 5 minutes before you wash it off.

4. Dish Soap:

 Dish soap is specially designed to remove oil from dishes, unlike regular hand soup, so scrubbing this on and rinsing under hot water should help remove some remaining oils.

5. Baking Soda:

 Mix up a solution of baking soda and water and submerge your hands into the paste. Once the paste has dried, wash it off along with the hot pepper sting. Repeat as needed until the burning completely subsides.
