What to do when ‘hell hath no fury. . .’
If your mouth burns, your eyes water, your nose runs, you perspire and your ears pop – you’ve had an attack of Capsaicin, the sting in chilli peppers.
If you can’t take a joke you shouldn’t have challenged the Reaper, Trinidad Scorpion, Naga, Habanero etc. If you have, and need help, here’s the magnificent 7.
Take plain yoghurt, holding some in the mouth
Drink a glass of milk, again holding some in the mouth
Drink alcohol (This really is not for everyone but it works for me)
Take a teaspoon of sugar
Eat some milk chocolate
Chew on a slice of bread
And if you must drink water, do, but you are more likely to drown before the burn passes
