The spicy chemicals are attracted to fat, so if it happens again why not try rubbing a litle olive oil or similar on the tip of your little friend.
I wouldn't rub Tequial on it mind you!

Anxiety: See my profile for an email address for contact. Share your Hopkins experience and I will reply with mine. I told Chris R. about your wish to contact and will cc him any messages.

Sorry about the spicy food. Didn't they warn you? Hope the recovery is going well.
