Looks like Bells' Palsy, a viral infection which affects the Facial Nerve causing it to swell up. Unfortunately, a large portion of this nerve passes through the temporal bone before it exits the skull behind and below your ears. This nerve swelling causes compression of the nerve in the bony canal causing your symptoms. Please drop into my clinic and let me confirm the diagnosis. It is easily treated with good medicines and physiotherapy.
