Customer Question
I was diagnosed with...

I was diagnosed with Ramsey Hunt Syndrome. Prior to the symptoms I had a severe allergic reaction to Lysol. Could the allergic reaction that attacked my immune system cause such a virus to become activated?

Doctor's Assistant: Do you have frequent headaches? Any issues with coordination or balance?

Yes on both

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had blisters on my body and rash two weeks following the allergic reaction. Then facial paralysis, ear and eye pain, droopy left side of face, confusion, ticking noise in my ear, vertigo like feeling

Doctor's Assistant: Are you experiencing any dizziness? Do you have a fever?

I had chicken pox 3 times as a child and shingles in 1997

No.

There is no evidence anywhere that lysol would have had anything to do with the virus.

NO one has ever studies such a connection.

Could there be a connection? No medical knowledge as to that.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.
