INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE BELL'S PALSY DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What is Bell's palsy?

Bell's palsy is a condition featuring paralysis, or weakness, of facial muscles, usually on just one side of the face. The condition is due to problems with the 7th cranial nerve – also called the facial nerve – that cannot be pinned to a detectable, direct cause, although any of the following viruses can trigger Bell's palsy indirectly by causing inflammation: herpes simplex virus (HSV); varicella-zoster virus; Epstein-Barr virus; cytomegalovirus; adenovirus; rubella virus; influenza B virus; coxsackievirus; human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
