Olive Oil

Rub olive oil over your hands for about a minute, and then wash them with soap and water. Hopefully the capsaicin will dissolve in the olive oil and rinse away with the oil when you wash your hands. This isn’t a cure, but it should help reduce the pain to a tolerable level while you wait an hour or so for it to completely dissipate.
