Bell’s palsy or facial palsy causes sudden and temporary weakness or paralysis of the facial muscles. This results in an inability to control the muscles on the affected side of the face, and that side of the face droops or becomes stiff. It makes the person’s smile one-sided and difficulty closing eyelids on that side. Bell’s palsy is caused due to injury or swelling or inflammation of the 7th cranial nerve that is the facial nerve. The other symptoms include drooling, facial muscle twitching, headache, decreased taste sensation, reduced production of tear and saliva, and facial numbness. Corticosteroids, physiotherapy, or decompression surgery is used in its treatment.
