Keeping warm is key when facial paralysis is high
Recently, the number of patients with facial paralysis in major hospitals has begun to increase significantly.
Prevention before disease, neurosurgery experts believe that as long as you pay more attention to your life, you can prevent it before it happens.
Face wash in the morning and sudden facial paralysis. The reporter learned from Renji Hospital Affiliated to the Second Medical University that neurosurgery and other professional institutions have reported that after the Spring Festival, patients with facial paralysis have come to this department for examinations and consultations.
Too many patients did not feel at all, but suddenly found that their face was abnormal when they washed their faces and looked in the mirror in the morning, mainly showing that the facial muscles were completely paralyzed, wrinkles disappeared, eye cracks enlarged, nasolabial sulci became shallow, and mouth corners drooped.
This type of facial paralysis can occur at any age. It is mostly young and middle-aged, and slightly more male than female. It is a mild stroke.
According to Dr. Wang Guisong of this department, after a sudden occurrence of facial paralysis, patients cannot wrinkle forehead, can not close their eyes, water will tilt from the corner of mouth when drinking or mouthwashing; can not blow air, bulging gills, vomiting lip when teeth sound; most patients inThere may be varying degrees of pain and tenderness at the back of the earlobe on the paralyzed side, which seriously affects the individual’s work and life.
After suffering from facial paralysis, go to the hospital in time to rule out facial paralysis caused by other causes to avoid misdiagnosis.
Generally, once the facial paralysis caused by cold wind is treated correctly and timely, pay attention to rest. Most patients can be completely cured within 3-6 months without sequelae.
Facial paralysis caused by a viral cold. Mr. Feng, who works for a foreign company in Pudong, contracted a virus cold during the Spring Festival. A few days ago, he was having lunch with his colleagues in the office happily. The colleagues suddenly found that his smile had stiffened and he could not restore his original appearance.
I went to the hospital for an examination and found that I had facial paralysis.
Regarding the cause of the occurrence of facial paralysis, experts introduced that, as a common clinical disease, facial paralysis is more likely to occur during seasonal changes, sudden changes in hot and cold climates or influenza, and its etiology has not yet been fully clarified.
The pathogenesis of many patients is often caused by the vasoconstriction of the local trophic nerve caused by facial overcooling stimulation, which causes the nerve tissue to increase edema and cause disease.
There are also some patients, such as Mr. Feng, due to overwork, viral colds and other factors that cause facial nerves to swell, become stressed, and cause facial paralysis.
It is understood that in addition to clinical symptomatic treatment in early treatment, rehabilitation is an important means to promote the recovery of facial paralysis.
Acute physiotherapy such as high frequency electrotherapy, infrared therapy, semiconductor laser, etc. can improve the blood circulation of the patient’s face as soon as possible and prevent further increase and expansion.
At the same time, the patient should take active health measures to cooperate with the treatment, such as keeping the face cold and warm, wearing a scarf and mask when going out, avoiding the wind blowing directly on the face, and eating or not eating frozen drinks or food.
Preventing facial paralysis and keeping warm According to Professor Xu Jiwen of Neurosurgery of Renji Hospital, to prevent facial paralysis, the first thing to do is to keep warm, and to avoid direct attacks on the face by opening cold, especially in frailness, illness, overwork, drinking and complicationsPeople with chronic diseases such as hypertension, arthritis, and neuralgia should not walk in the wind.
In addition, those who are physically weak should strengthen their physique and improve their disease resistance.

Finally, eat more fruits and vegetables.
