Hi. Unfortunately in some people, there is a persistent partial paralysis which is irreversible. However, this asymmetry can be treated with Botox therapy. Apart from this there is limited improvement with exercise and medications after 2 years of disease.
Next Steps
Kindly consult a neurologist who is experienced in Botox injections treatment for further management.
Health Tips
Botox injections may be required on a regular basis (4-6 monthly).
