Facial Nerve Palsy Treatment
Facial nerve palsy (FNP) may or may not have a discernible cause, such as Bell’s palsy. Common causes include systemic viral infections, trauma, surgery, diabetes, local infections, tumors, immunological disorders and even drugs. Treatments will naturally be aimed at relieving the conditions that are causing symptoms. Steroids can help reduce inflammation, and antiviral medications defeat viral illnesses that may be the culprit.
When tumors or trauma is behind your facial nerve palsy symptoms, surgical solutions may be required to remove offending objects or repair damage that affects the facial nerve. Other surgical solutions can be offered to restore balance and symmetry to the facial features when FNP seems permanent. Whether or not a patient’s facial nerve palsy is permanent, treatments are usually desirable to correct the appearance and restore quality of life.
