(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Han Seong-gan = Research results have shown that capsaicin, a spicy ingredient in peppers, is effective in relieving neuropathic pain (NP).

Neuropathic pain is an intractable chronic pain that occurs due to damage or dysfunction of the nervous system.

Professor Kaiube Kern’s research team at the Institute for Pain Medicine and Pain Treatment (IPM/PP) in Wiesbaden, Germany, studied neuropathic pain and neuropathic back pain after surgery or trauma who received high-concentration capsaicin patch (HCCP) treatment at least twice between 2011 and 2022. HealthDay News reported on the 14th that this was discovered as a result of analyzing the electronic medical records of 97 patients with post-herpes zoster nerve pain.

They were taking narcotic analgesics, anticonvulsants, and antidepressants at the start of capsaicin treatment, and additionally took capsaicin for two years along with these concomitant medications.

At the beginning of the study, these patients had overall high pain intensity.

The research team compared pain intensity at the beginning of the study and two years after capsaicin was administered concurrently.

As a result, patients who received HCCP treatment at least twice had significant relief from neuralgia.

In addition, the average daily morphine equivalent dose of narcotic analgesics that was being taken decreased significantly.

The research team explained that these results show that HCCP treatment is effective in reducing the intensity of neuralgia and at the same time reducing the use of narcotic painkillers.

The results of this study were published in the latest issue of the World Pain Institute (WIP) journal ‘Pain Practice’.
