Even after 4 months with regular physiotherapy, full cure is not effected to the face and the right eye is also not blinking regularly. Is there any medicine available for quick rehabilitation ?

Most people with Bell's palsy recover fully — with or without treatment. There's no one-size-fits-all treatment for Bell's palsy, but your doctor may suggest medications or physical therapy to help speed your recovery. Surgery is rarely an option for Bell's palsy.

In the past, decompression surgery was used to relieve the pressure on the facial nerve by opening the bony passage that the nerve passes through. Today, decompression surgery isn't recommended. Facial nerve injury and permanent hearing loss are possible risks associated with this surgery.

In rare cases, plastic surgery may be needed to correct lasting facial nerve problems.
