Not that I was looking forward to the opportunity to do this test BUT I am glad that the opportunity arose on such a small scale.
Here is the cut.
Note to self to always were gloves when handling glass.
Here is the cut covered in Cayenne Pepper. I repeated the process a couple of times to make sure it got in there good.
And thirty seconds later, with no compress and no wiping of the cut.
Sixty seconds later, here I sit typing this thread and my thumb looks just like it did in the last pic.
Obvious question is : Did it burn ? Answer: NO
You didn't feel anything ? Answer: Yes
It felt like I sprinkled a little salt on it. Not the burning sensation one would expect at all and believe you me, I was holding my breath when I started to sprinkle it on.
As you know hands and fingers bleed for a while when cut. The bleeding stopped almost instantly after this little test.
It works..... No Joke.
I have a bottle of Cayenne in my locker at work incase someone knocks themself out with a 2x4.
