Experimenter- and Infrared Thermography-Derived Measures of Capsaicin-Induced Neurogenic Flare Among Non-Hispanic White and Black Adults.


Capsaicin is a widely utilized experimental pain stimulus; however, few studies have reported on ethnic differences in pain responses to capsaicin. The present study used infrared thermography to 1) measure differences in capsaicin-induced neurogenic flare between non-Hispanic black (NHB) and non-Hispanic white (NHW) adults and 2) determine the association between neurogenic flare and secondary hyperalgesia.
