Many times when I make a quick salsa, salad, or southwestern meal, I chop chiles without rubber gloves. Usually this doesn’t irritate my hands, but on occasion they tingle and turn pink. I find that the best remedy is to put a bit of baking soda mixed with a little water in the palm of my hand or on my fingertips, and rub the paste over my hands, and then rinse. The irritation goes away.
