How To Deal With Bell’s Palsy In Adolescents?
good night, I’m 17 years old. I want to ask. My mother has been sick with Bell’s palsy for almost a year but has not yet healed …. I am asking for a good solution / medicine to help cure?
Hello Adhyna, Thank you for your question.
Bell's palsy is weakness or paralysis on one side of the face due to interference with nerves in the face. This weakness or paralysis is temporary. In addition to facial muscle weakness / paralysis, sufferers can also experience taste and disturbances in the production of tears and saliva. The cause of Bell's palsy is not known clearly however, infection with several viruses is associated with this condition. Bell's palsy treatment is generally intended to reduce irritation of nerves by administering steroids. In addition, the doctor will also give eye drops if the patient has difficulty closing their eyes.
The duration of healing of this condition depends on the severity of nerve damage experienced by the patient. As many as 70% of patients can recover completely from this condition, symptoms will improve within 2-3 weeks. But total recovery generally occurs after 9 months. In some patients, this condition causes complications in the form of weakness / paralysis of facial muscles that occur continuously. It is better to advise your mother to consult a neurologist first. Doctors need to do an examination on your mother to find out your mother's condition before giving further treatment.
Hopefully this information is useful.
