Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'll be happy to help you today.
The good news is that the chili pequin pepper juice will cause no damage to your childs eyes.
I see you already flushed with tap water. You should do that for at least 15 min.
How do I remove any of the capsain (sp?) oil from his fingers so prevent any further irritation on his face?
soap and water should take off the peper juice....how old is your child.
5 1/2 yrs old. I know it is an oily substance from the peppers. Would alcohol sanitizer help remove from his hands?
Soap and water should take off the oils. Alcohol wipes won't work as well, but they may help if soap and water is not available
Ok. He has washed his hands several times with soap and water. His eyes feel better. Thanks
Also take a warm soapy wash cloth and use that to get the oils off her eyelids/face.
If it still hurts, and this sounds crazy but it works, put rinse his eye with cool milk.
The milk absorbs the oils and sooths the eye. You don't have to do this if the above steps work, but cold milk really works
Sounds good. If it continues I will try the milk. Thanks
you can put the milk right on the eyeball without any damage
