It is characterized by lesions in the ear, facial paralysis, and associated hearing and vestibular symptoms [ ; ; ; ]. Herpes zoster ophthalmicus — occurs when the virus infects the ophthalmic division of the trigeminal nerve.

Shingles Shingles - NICE CKS Share Shingles: Summary Shingles (herpes zoster) is a viral infection of an individual nerve and the skin surface that is served by the nerve (dermatome). It is caused by the reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus, the virus which causes chicken pox. The incidence (and severity) of shingles increase with age. Other risk factors include immunocompromise (for example due to long-term corticosteroid use; HIV infection; lymphoproliferative malignancies

. The complications of malignant otitis include: Facial nerve paralysis. Meningitis. [ ; ; ] Prognosis What is the prognosis for people with otitis externa? Acute diffuse otitis externa: Symptoms of acute otitis externa usually improve within 48–72 hours of initiation of treatment. Between 65–90% of patients with uncomplicated diffuse otitis externa have clinical resolution within 7 to 10 days, regardless of the topical medicine used. Localized otitis externa: Folliculitis may heal on its own after an initial (...) . Malignant otitis . Neoplasm — if there is a swelling in the ear canal that bleeds easily on contact. Compared with localized otitis externa, there is less pain and the onset is slower. Referred pain — may originate from the sphenoidal sinus, teeth, neck, or throat. Ramsay Hunt syndrome — a form of herpes zoster affecting the facial nerve, associated with facial paralysis and loss of taste, which can also produce pain in the ear and other areas supplied by the nerve.

144. Management of Bell palsy: clinical practice guideline

Management of Bell palsy: clinical practice guideline B ell palsy is an idiopathic weakness or paralysis of the face of peripheral nerve origin, with acute onset. It affects 20–30 persons per 100 000 annually, and 1 in 60 indi- viduals will be affected over the course of their lifetime. 1,2 The major cause of Bell palsy is believed to be an infection of the facial nerve by the herpes simplex virus. 3 As a result of this viral infection, the facial nerve swells and is compressed in its canal (...) weakness. (Strong recommendation: very low confidence in estimates.) We identified no randomized or observational studies comparing outcomes for patients with Bell palsy who were and were not referred to a special- ist. Therefore, our confidence in the effect estimates was very low. For patients with no improvement in facial nerve function or progression of facial nerve paralysis, referral to an otolaryngologist may be reasonable to confirm the diagnosis and to exclude other conditions.

causes this paralysis of the facial nerve and there are also uncertainties about how best to treat it. Corticosteroids may be prescribed, to reduce inflammation and limit nerve damage. A viral cause has been suggested so antiviral drugs may be used to treat it and there are other options too.

There are several Cochrane (...) moderate and low quality evidence that: adding antivirals to corticosteroids was more effective than corticosteroids alone for treating Bell’s palsy of varying levels of severity and was associated with fewer long-term after-effects of Bell’s palsy for people with severe Bell’s palsy (with complete or almost complete facial paralysis) adding antivirals to corticosteroids was slightly more effective corticosteroids alone were more effective than antivirals alone corticosteroids plus antivirals were more
