I've made atomic buffalo turds a few times. One time was exceptionally painful however. I picked up about 30 Jalapenos from Wally World They were quite potent. My eyes watered a bit as I was coring them. In the course of preparation I inadvertently touched my face just below my eye the pain was almost immediate. I went to the bathroom & doused my face with water. The pain was still there, After a few minutes thought I remembered having some drawing salve in the medicine cabinet. I thought that would draw the heat from the face, So I applied some to the affected area. It seemed to help & I went back to my task. While coring the remainder of the peppers I smelled something inappropriate. I thought that perhaps the peppers were bad. I held one to my nose to get a whiff. To my displeasure I found the the drawing salve doesn't have a one way valve & sucked the heat from the pepper into my face. My face felt afire, my eyes closed up I thought I may die. I felt my way back to the bathroom & immersed my head in the water from the bathtub. The pain finally subsided & I finished the peppers. The smell was the salve the peppers were fine.
Since that experience I wear surgical gloves while preparing ABT's & keep my hands away from my face til I'm done.
