  1. this was horrible.
    I washed hands two times and than touched eyes, bad idea.
    I tried first oil (well oil might dilute spicy oils), then I found about milk. Didn feel relief, actually milk put more spice in my eyes.
    Now I know, Most important: DONT rub (milk, tiers or whatever), DONT use your hands but ask for help. Maybe wash hands with milk first?
    I just touched lips, still burning,
    Pepper is feferone, food is pasta with chime di rapa.

    • Thank you for your post. My husband got hot pepper burns in both eyes and I asked my computer to help find a remedy. Your post was perfect. We washed his eyes with milk as you advised. The milk started calming the intense pain immediately . Thank you again.

      • Oh my! I hope he’s doing much better and I’m so glad I was able to help.
