Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

In conclusion, pre-treatment with EMLA significantly reduced the burning sensation from capsaicin and attenuated heat hyperalgesia during treatment.
We examined whether pre-treatment with the topical anesthetic EMLA reduces the burning sensation induced by capsaicin and alters capsaicin effects on thermal sensation and pain thresholds.

Average and peak pain ratings were significantly lower at the EMLA site during the first 15-30 min of capsaicin treatment.
EMLA fails to produce a long lasting attenuation of the pain induced by topical application of 1% capsaicin.
These results argue against the use of EMLA to block pain to topical capsaicin during the treatment of neurogenic pain.

CONCLUSION We observed that the combination of capsaicin and EMLA in a low concentration is as effective in managing venous cannulation as when applied as an individual drug alone.
