Burning fingers after cutting Peppers

Patient: I was cutting up a habenaro pepper and now my finger tips are hurting very badly. I have had to keep my fingers in water since. What can it do to stop the burning?

 

 

Doctor: Placing your fingers through running water is your only option. There are no other forms of relief. Please be careful to not touch your eyes.
