I washed it out and flushed it with lubricant drops, which helped ease the burning. Is there anything else I should do? How long does it take to rid the eye of the capsaisin? Can it cause further infection in the eye?
I found a lot of people successfully use the following: milk, yogurt, cottage cheese, anything creamy works best. One person said: "I got some in my eye last week by a habanero ... OUCH! Well used some milk and worked pretty good."
Another suggestion: Scrub hands with lemon, vinegar or rub with oil before cutting. The oil is the least user friendly idea.
