Contact of the chili sauce to the eye can certainly trigger a burning sensation or stinging due to irritation of the eyes. This condition can be a common thing and will usually get better by itself after you wash your eyes with clean water.
Need to clarify first, how long have you experienced the heat? Has it happened more than 24 hours? Do other complaints arise, such as blurred vision, abnormal discharge from the eye, etc.?
What is worried about the long-lasting burning and burning sensation is infection of the eye components. This infection can occur due to the entry of microorganisms, such as bacteria or fungi, through contact lenses or hands that are not kept clean. This infection can then trigger inflammation in the eye, which can be limited to the conjunctiva (conjunctivitis), uvea tract (uveitis), cornea (keratitis), to other deeper eye components. Not only hot or sore, this infection will generally also cause red eyes, blurry vision, watery, abnormal secretions (belekan), and so on.
If your complaint has lasted more than 24 hours, or appears accompanied by other complaints as mentioned above, then we recommend that you check your complaint directly to the doctor. With a direct physical evaluation, doctors can generally distinguish which conditions are mild and require treatment. immediately to an ophthalmologist.
In the meantime, as an initial treatment, you can first do the following:
First remove your contact lenses
Put into the eye eye drops containing artificial tears (artificial tears)
Avoid rubbing your eyes excessively
Protect your eyes so you don't get into the chili sauce or other particles that can irritate your eyes, for example dust, smoke, or other pollutants
Hope it helps ..
