Getting rid of the sting of capsaicin

I passed along a recipe for harissa to a friend -- and she just made a big batch of it without wearing gloves. I thought she knew so I didn't mention it -- she's an experienced cook, but she thought it was only the fresh ones that cause pain. So now, as I recall, that pain will go on for a day or two. Does anyone have any effective remedies for the stinging, burning pain you get when you cut up chiles without wearing gloves?
