Re: chronic wrist pain
That Capsaicin is pretty strong stuff, yes indeedy.
I was chopping a jalapeno for some chili a couple weeks ago and thought I had washed my hands thoroughly. I soon realized I was wrong.
Thankfully, there was just a little residue left, so it was more of an intense tingling than a burning, but it was about 5 to 10 minutes of uncomfortableness.
Funny thing is, I don't really remember rubbing my eyes.
Could have been worse, though.
