Substance P

Capsaicin, the active ingredient in Zostrix®, relieves your pain by reducing Substance P, a chemical messenger in nerve cells that is responsible for transmitting pain signals to your brain. Extended exposure to capsaicin desensitizes sensory receptors in your skin and lowers the pain nerve cells’ chemical store, causing you to feel less pain.
