Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. SH and will be helping you out with your concerns today.

With what you are describing you are most likely having Bell's Palsy which is a condition of unknown cause that leads to facial nerve paralysis leading to once side of the face muscles not to work.

Treatment is with prednisolone which is a steroid, for two weeks.

I would strongly recommend that you be seen ASAP.

If you cannot get an appointment with your doctor soon then I would recommend that you be seen in the emergency as you definitely will require a script for prednisone once this is diagnosed.

This session is open for any further questions that you may have.
