@Scottielass: Oh I have had it MUCH MUCH worse–I won’t tell you about the worst time, but a close second was having chili oil and then wiping my nose which caused my nose to tingle and run at the same time for hours. And it kept tingling in my sinuses so I was crying at the same time. Sexy.

Honestly, it kind of just takes time. You can try a napkin soaked in milk which tended to soothe it, but only so long as the compress is on–it’s not a cure. I’ve heard baking soda, rubbing alcohol/nail polish, lemon juice, vinegar…

You can try wetting your hands and rubbing them on anything stainless steel, like your faucet. That’s generally a trick I use for getting garlic smell off my hands–and it works!–but I’m not sure about oil. Couldn’t hurt though, could it?
