Ok, so I have used these peppers many times with no issue. DH and I love them - a bit more flavor and heat than a green pepper, but not nearly the heat of a jalapeno.
I cut them at about 7:30 last night, was fine until bed. Then I woke up a few hours later and thought my left hand was on fire. It feels like I put it on a hot stove. Taking a hot shower this morning was torture. I tried to find remedies online (from sour cream to rubbing alcohol) and nothing seems to be working for more than a few minutes. I have read that lime juice cuts the acid, but unfortunately don't have any on hand.
If nothing else its just a warning. I have cut hot peppers without gloves my entire life and NEVER had the slightest issue (unless I touched my eyes of course). Not sure if I'm more sensitive b/c of pregnancy, b/c of winter dry skin... Either way. Wear gloves :) I will be from now on!!
