I don't wear gloves either, and I also wash immediately.  I've learned that
you can largely avoid the juices of peppers if you hold them so as to avoid
touching the cut surfaces.  I try to hold on to the stem, etc.  A little
bit of precaution can go a long way.

OTOH, there is a certain pleasure in a mellow case of Hunan Hand.

Hey, speaking of skin and capsaicin - my mom recently had a bout of
shingles (viral skin disease) and the doctors told her there was no topical
treatment to ease the tingling irritation.  Someone else told me that there
are cap products that can alleviate this.  That's what I suspected, too. 
Anybody have information on this?
