How To Deal With Bell’s Palsy?
good afternoon, I want to ask if the left face has bell palsy and the eyes are hard to close, how do you cure it ?? or what should i do? thank you
When did the complaint occur? Has it been checked by a doctor and confirmed bell's palsy? Bell's palsy is a condition of nerve impairment / nerve palsy that innervates the face so that one side of the face looks drooping. Symptoms in the form of one side of the face look saggy, talk pelo, difficult to close one eye, difficulty smiling, watery eyes, streaking, decreased ability to taste, pain around the jaw and behind the ears, ears ringing, and more sensitive to sound.
The cause of bell's palsy is thought to be due to a viral infection. To make sure the bell's palsy, the doctor can do anamnesis, physical examination, and if necessary, carry out investigations with EMG, MRI, CT scan, and blood tests. Handling of bell's palsy is by giving antiviral, corticosteroid, painkillers, physiotherapy and Botox injection to help restore facial muscle function, and additional treatments to prevent dry eyes.
If you experience complaints such as bell's palsy, I suggest that you immediately consult a neurologist directly so that further tests can be done to make sure first. If it is confirmed, then the doctor will give you more appropriate treatment according to your current condition.
For eye care alone, doctors generally can provide eye drops during the day, eye ointments at night, the use of glasses to prevent exposure to dust and smoke, as well as applying adhesive to cover eyes during sleep until conditions improve.
Hope it helps you,
