Hello. I Feel Like My Hands Are On Fire. (With Updates)

10:06 a.m. 15 hours and they're still burning. It's only by the grace of God in Christ Jesus I managed to sleep through it. I've applied since:
  • Bleach/water solution
  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Lemon/Lime Juice
  • Lemon Juice soaked in Apples
  • Corn starch
  • Baking Soda
  • Hand Soap
  • Burn Cream a couple times.
  • Milk (multiple times)
  • Ice Water, (usually mixed with one of the above.) 
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Olive Oil
  • Apple Cider Vinegar (Heinz, not Brachhs)
  • Vagasil (yes, for burning)
  • Benadryl
  • Salt
  • Sugar
All of these have been on my hands today and some of last night. Still burning same as this morning.

Anyway, I feel like I've exhausted everything short of anything that would take away all feeling in my hands. -_-

The burning, April said, was the effect of Serrano Peppers, which I THOUGHT were jalepenos. In fact, according to Wikipedia"

Scoville scale10,000–25,000 SHU

That's ridiculously hot and it's all over my hands since last night.

10:33 a.m. I found a solution that seems to be giving the longer relief of anything I tried. Gonna stick it out and see but it seems like it worked. Prayer helps, too. Gotta keep the faith going.


Just a few simple steps and I guarantee you that it will work.

1. Take any oil, cooking or Mustard oil. 
2. Rub oil in your affected hand, so that the hand get wet with oil.
3. Now take 1 table spoon salt and rub in your oil wet hand. Rub it evenly and you will notice the salt mixing with the oil. Do it for 30 seconds.
4. Now shake your hand on fire, use kitchen burner. Keep safe distance so that you don't burn your hand. Just shake your hand for 1 minute. Make sure your hand get warm. While shaking you will feel that your burning sensation in pepper affected area increase but don't bother with it.
5. After 1 minute of shaking just wash your hand with soap. Your burning sensation is gone....

It's difficult to say if it was this alone, or a combination of today's earlier efforts, but by the grace of God, it seems to have worked! Praise Jesus, Praise the Lord!

10:52 a.m. Well, it lasted twenty minutes. Back to burning and square one. :/ Only Jesus can help me now. I got nothing.

11:22 a.m. Burning subsiding after trying mustard. Feeling more relief again.

11:49 a.m. Still have relief. I have caked mustard on my hands now but it's worth it as long as this lasts. :) I noticed that the house is so freezing I don't need the extra step of adding ice. If I go and walk in the warm sun again as I did moments earlier, the burning comes back, albeit lightly but I'd prefer it gone. It's now been about 17 hours since contact and I haven't even eaten yet, waiting until I regain the normal painless function of my hand again...for sure this time!

More soon. God bless, Jesus loves, lives, saves! and again I say, this is a lesson learned, one of those things bad enough that you only need it to happen to you once to avoid it.

12:02 p.m. Burning seems to have subsided so far. Feeling optimistic. ^_^

12:37 p.m. Burning has subsided, as long as I keep my hands from heat (say from the sink which isnt running cold water right now for some reason or the hot day outside) then iot should be fine. Lazy day today, it is. :/
