Bells palsy is a temporary condition of the nervous system in the face. This disorder can be caused by facial diarrhea nerves especially VII nerve cranial nerves in the area around the face at the peripheral or brain level. As a result there is a change in sensation on one side of the face and usually will cause asymmetry of the shape of the face.
Symptoms that often occur in bells palsy include:
The right and left sides are asymmetrical
It's hard to close your eyes
Difficult movements to make facial expressions
A reduced sensation of touch
Difficult to raise eyebrows
The causes of damage at the peripheral and brain levels have different symptoms. However, the above symptoms are common symptoms experienced by patients with bells palsy.
Related to your complaint, you should first make sure to see a doctor to assess the abnormality that you are experiencing. Someone who previously had a history of bells palsy can indeed experience a recurrence. However, it should be known that swelling and pain around the cheeks can also occur due to other causes such as trauma / post-injury, sinusitis, cellulitis, etc. The treatment also differs based on the underlying cause.
If the disorder you are experiencing is caused by bells palsy, then the treatment that can be done is by giving kostikostreoid tablets which over time can heal by itself. Physiotherapy can be done to help correct the functional abnormalities experienced in patients.
To help reduce your complaints and prevent complaints from recurring, the following things you can do include:
Perform a healthy lifestyle
Eat healthy and nutritious foods
Inadequate water needs
Avoid stress and fatigue
Avoid cigarettes and consumption
And do the treatment according to instructions from the doctor
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
