Ohh! 2: "Capsaicin is being used in an analgesic agent in the treatment of painful disorders, causing long-term loss of responsiveness because it kills off the nociceptor, or it destroys the peripheral terminals.""Topical application of capsaicin relieves pain and itching by acting on sensory nerves. Capsaicin temporarily depletes “substance P”, a chemical in nerves that transmits pain sensations. Without substance P, pain signals can no longer be sent. . . . With the aid of a healthcare professional, capsaicin administered via the nose may also be a potentially useful therapy for cluster headaches."This one's pretty cool:http://www.nature.com/nsu/001026/001026-11.html
