When I was in Mexico my Mother in law had me wash my hands with pure lemon juice and salt, it works real good to get the burn down as well as getting the pepper juices out of the pores of the skin in your hands.

Soak your hands in a bowl of milk, that will take the pain out. I don't remember the reason why it was supposed to work.. but I know it does work wonders.
