Bell's Palsy Treatment

Treatment for Bell's palsy generally consists of a short course of corticosteroids to reduce any inflammation that may exist in the nerve.

A general painkiller may be used for pain.

Eye drops and / or ointment to help keep the eye moist may also be required.

If some corneal erosion occurs, taping of the eye using a patch is generally sufficient to repair any damage. However, in cases where there is a risk of permanent damage to the cornea of the eye, it may be necessary to suture the eyelid closed and apply taping to the corners of the eyelid to ensure protection.

Taping is also used in some cases to help prevent the lower eyelid on the affected side of the face from drooping.
