24-48 hours after consuming a very small piece of a habanero pepper, I'm getting very hot burning sensations inside my extremities, my hands and feet. Is this normal?

At first I had the topical burns from handling the habanero pepper on the surface of my hands as I was handling it (I had no idea how hot it was), but now I'm getting internal systemic heat coming from inside my fingers. 24-48 hrs have already elapsed.

Is there internal temperature impact from consuming habanero peppers?

These orange-colored hot peppers (not the jalapenos but the orange habaneros), sold in every grocery store, are a public health hazard. Even touching them with bare hands is extremely dangerous.

Chilies will continue to burn for a couple days. I'm guessing the sensation is in the same spot you had heat externally?

It's used as a topical pain relief for those properties (counter-irritant).

The sensation is in the same spot I had heat externally, yes, namely my fingertips. But now after I've washed with soap countless times I have a feeling it comes from the bloodstream inside the fingertips, a burning/tingling sensation especially when I lie down.

This is the 2nd day now, nearly 48 hours have elapsed.

It's normal.

Habaneros bring heat to a whole new level and should be used with caution, this tough guy kinda puts it in perspective=

Our family are huge lovers of hot and spicy, but Habaneros are even hot for us. I don't think they will really hurt you in a serious way, but they still can make you pretty miserable for a few days. Even Jalapenos can; it is hard to know when one will be really hot. You can take 2 off the same plant; one is too mild to even be a tasty as a bell pepper, the next can be hotter than a Habanero.
