  • Bell's
  • The majority of people with Bell's palsy recover full facial strength and expression. (nyhq.org)

  • Otitis media is an infection in the middle ear, which can spread to the facial nerve and inflame it, causing compression of the nerve in its canal. (wikipedia.org)
  • The symptoms and signs include acute facial nerve paralysis, pain in the ear, taste loss in the front two-thirds of the tongue, dry mouth and eyes, and an erythematous vesicular rash in the ear canal, the tongue, and/or hard palate. (wikipedia.org)
