Pepper spray SUCKS! (Read 1240 times)

    PSA: Kids, be careful with pepper spray...  My pepper spray somehow got unlocked before my run today and I stupidly didn't check it. While running I managed to hit it just enough for it to spray my left hand. I didn't think too much about it until it started to sting about 15 minutes later. I splashed around in a puddle and thought it would stop tingling. It didn't. I was running with a severely struggling friend and it took an eternity to get back to our cars after the little spritz.  It was probably at least an hour before I was able to thoroughly wash it and 6 hours later it still feel like a million fire ants are on my hand. Awesome.

    I don't half-ass anything

      Yikes--I'm glad you didn't have it pointed near your face!  That is a good cautionary tale, indeed.

          It's probably too late now, but rubbing your hands with vegetable oil would have been more effective than soap and water. The capsaicin from pepper is oil-soluble. Hope you're okay now.

          Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

             I may still try that. I'll try anything. It's been 6 hours and it's still killing me. It stopped for a while, but then the margaritas wore off.

              Yes, wash your hands with oil, THEN with soap.  Then with oil. Then with soap.  repeat  Unfortunately with the delay it may have soaked in enough to piss off the nerves, but a good oil soap wash will at least prevent you from killing yourself if you accidentally rub mucous membranes.  Like your eyes.  Or when you change the baby's diaper.

                good to know but i am glad to know it does suck if some asshole wants to mess with me - at least it does cause some irritation

                  I imagine it especially irritates some asshole.

                          Also, hopefully none of it rubbed off and got onto the steering wheel of your car or anything else.  Check that.

                             I was really, REALLY careful. I was absolutely certain I didn't want to endure that again. The next day I was gnawing at a hangnail and I swear my mouth started to tingle. I may have been imagining it though. I haven't gotten around to washing the spray thing yet. I'm too afraid to even deal with it again.
