Dr. Ashok Deo (Psychiatry) needs a second opinion on this medical case.
This patient developed pain in left ear and next day angle of mouth turned to opposite, right side. His left eye doesn't close properly and vesicles were seen in left ear canal. This is a typical case of Bells palsy but a variant- Ramse hunt syndrome and strongly suggests a viral etiology, varicella Zoster. He has been put on Prednisolone and acyclovir and recovering. He has been started these medications on 22 July...hopefully after a week his facial appearance will be normal. I will upload photo.
