Bell’s palsy is a form of temporary facial weakness. It results from damage or trauma to the 7th cranial nerve called facial nerve. It presents as drooping of the eyelid and corner of the mouth, drooling, dryness of the eye or mouth, impairment of taste, and excessive tearing in one eye. Most often these symptoms usually begin suddenly and reach their peak within 48 hours and lead to significant facial distortion.
