Help! My hands and eyes are burning! What do I do?

Hot peppers contain Capsaicin an ingredient in pepper spray! Wear gloves whenever working with peppers and as silly as it may seem safety glasses will help protect your eyes and make it harder to touch them. Using an oil, such as olive oil to rub your hands then washing with soap and water helps relieve the burning.
