Named after Sir Charles Bell, a 19th-century Scottish doctor, Bell's palsy describes facial paralysis institute brought on by an irritation to the cranial nerve VII (number 7). It's this nerve that controls nearly all of your facial muscles including even those that get a handle on your smile, flash and wrinkle the forehead.

There are many who genuinely believe that facial paralysis is caused as a result of extreme exposure to cold conditions though there's no evidence to suggest this. There are others who think that facial paralysis happens due to an infection of the cranial nerve VII which might have been the result of a viral infection.

Further, it has been seen that oral steroids like prednisone are very successful in reducing the course of this disease and at the same time enhance the recovery rate very successfully. In very severe cases surgery helps in reducing the stress on the nerve, therefore stopping permanent nerve damage.
