Have mouth ulcer, ear infection. Have difficulty in moving the face. What to do?

Last Friday I had an ulcer on my tounge. It has not fully healed. I applied an over the counter med for pain. 3 days ago I started feeling like I had a right ear infection. It's not the worst pain just noticeable. Then yesterday I noticed that the right side of my face has become hard to move and my eye is hard to shut. Feels like there are no muscles in the right side of my face.

as far as the symptoms you have mentioned you seems to have developed weekness of the nerve involving your face which might have followed an ulcer in the mouth. if there are symptoms of difficulty in closure of eye and difficulty in swallowing and loss of facial expression and water dribbling from the angle of the mouth you need to start tab neurobion two times a day along with tab prednisolone 10 mg 2tab three times a day for three days and then gradually reducing the dosage every three day to a total of two weeks times and also you need to do exercises to open and close your eyes 40 to 50 times and avoid exposure to sun to avoid infection in the eye and massage for the muscles of the face on the affected side
