    Tried the shampoo and it didn’t touch it. Best thing that worked for us was Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream. Basically eliminate the heat almost immediately.

    I'm in mid way of this but are they gonna try warm water? Because it helps. A lot. It will sting but then it heals the pain.

    There really isn’t a cure for serious pepper burn that isn’t topical in nature. Once you’ve triggered those vanillanoid receptors and the axons start firing saltatorially and it gets to the sympathetic nervous system then it’s going to burn with an intensity and duration proportional to the initial insult. Some of these topicals can help mitigate some of the intensity of the pain for a short duration but it’s like dropping acid...once it’s absorbed into the epithelial tissue of your mouth then the trip will be over when it’s over.

    When Sean said "so this is the last dab" to explain the sauce they were about to eat my brain immediately went to "So this is the last dab. We call it the last dab, because its tradition around here to a put a little extra on the last wing. You dont have to, if you dont want to." 😂😂

    My favorite hotsauce remedy is chocolate milk with a bit of salt in it. Salt for acid. Milk because it has fat.

    I have a rule...I eat BB3Ss wild wings wet extra wet once a week...I cannot eat the celery with ranch or take a drink until the wings are finished and my fingers are completely clean. Why the fuck do you try and try and find a cure to the experience?! Idiotz.

    I've always heard that WARM whole milk was the best remedy. The warmth allows the papillae (pores) containing your tastebuds to relax, letting more of the capsaicin out to be combated by the fats in the milk.
