Hello,

Bell's palsy is a condition characterized by facial nerve dysfunction.

The cause is unknown, however ischemia and nerve swelling are thought to be the culprit.

Your current treatment is correct.

I would add artificial tears for your eye.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Erion Spaho, Neurologist, Surgical
