A thermographic device shows that the flare response starts as early as a few seconds after the capsaicin injection (35). The area of hyperalgesia to stroking stimuli appears immediately after injection, peaks within 15 min and then gradually decreases over 1–6 h. The area of hyperalgesia to punctate stimulation is immediately present after injection, grows to a maximum within 15–30 min, decreases gradually, and disappears at about 21 h. 5 h after injection (33). 1, 1, 10, and 100 mg) produces dose-dependent increases in spontaneous pain, area and intensity of mechanical allodynia, area and intensity of pinprick hyperalgesia, and flare area (36).
