Thanks for writing to us.

The numbness of cheek as well as tongue can be due to side effect of medication administered,or the treatment undergone.

I would advice you to get the medication replaced.

Also check for any mucosal inflammation or infection of teeth.

Avoid spicy allergic foods,tobacco or pan chewing.

Vitamin b complex as well as folic aid supplements has to be administered.

Hope this helps.
