No one warned me
I've seen people cut up jalapenos on TV before. Just slice open, scoop out the seeds, and chop up right? Wrong. About 5 minutes after I performed the afore mentioned steps, the back of my finger was burning like I had touched the stove with it. I ran it under cold water for a bit, then went back to cooking. After it persisted in burning, I stuck it in my mouth and it was really spicy. Pretty soon, the back of my neck started burning, then all of my hands, then my cheeks, and eyes. I consulted the internet, my mom, and Tyler's mom on how to treat pepper burns. Somewhere after the milk, vinegar, and baking soda (see pictures) my face stopped burning. However, my hands continued to burn even after the Desitin and Anbesol. They burned for two days.
