Thank you for your question.

Is there any change in color of the skin on that side?

Any other symptoms like fever, cough, cold etc?

Please let me know.

Will respond in a moment. Sorry for the late response.

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.

The symptoms that you are having i.e. left side of the face "hot" is a nonspecific symptom if there are no other signs and symptoms like fever, change in the color of the skin, cough, flu etc.

This does not, in itself, represent any disease process.

Most likely it will go away by its own in due course of time.

I would not worry whatsoever.

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