In brief: Cool butter

The active ingredient of a hot pepper burn is a colorless irritant phenolic amide c18h27no3 found in various capsicums that gives hot peppers their hotness and that is used in topical creams for its pain relief properties.
This burning can be neutralized by butter fat applied to the skin or drinking whole or buttermilk.
