The Left Face Is Numb After The Accident?
slmat night … I want to ask .. 1 month ago I had a motorcycle accident … swollen cheeks .. bones under the eyes were bumped .. until now the upper left lip .. the left side of the nose is numb … that’s why yes. ..
Thank you for the question.
Swollen cheeks, bones under the eyes are bulging, and numbness around the lips to the nose can refer to dangerous conditions, or may not. If complaints arise after an accident, then the possibility of triggers is edema, hematoma, fractures or broken bones, soft tissue injuries, and even infection. But apart from being affected by the accident, your complaint may also be caused by a nervous breakdown, jaw joint disorders, contact dermatitis, and various other diseases.
As long as there is no fever, vomiting, severe headaches, even bleeding from the nose, mouth and ears, chances are your condition is harmless. Try to resolve your complaint first with the following efforts:
Compress warm areas of the face that are swollen and numb
Do not carelessly massage or give medication to the face of complaints without doctor's advice
Rest more, with the head elevated
Clean your face well when bathing
Eat a variety of balanced nutritious foods, especially those containing vitamin B complex, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and other nutrients for nerves
In the midst of the current conditions, namely when the COVID-19 outbreak was rampant, it would be better if you first stay at home and only consult a doctor or neurologist if the complaint does not improve with the above efforts. So, if the complaint worsens, check with your doctor immediately ..
I hope this helps.
