Ramsay Hunt's syndrome is a neurological condition.
Caused by the varicella zoster virus,
This is the same virus that causes chickenpox.
In children and shingles in adults.
The virus can stay in your body for the rest of your life.
Even after a long time after you have recovered from chickenpox,
And wake up again to irritate the veins in your face.
"The veins that run through your face pass through relatively narrow bone canals,
And when they form, they swell and lose the ability to move,"
Said Dr. Anna Wald, an infectious disease specialist at the University of Washington School of Medicine.
The disease affects both men and women and can result in paralysis of one part of the face and a painful blistering rash.
Ear and face pain are a most common part of the syndrome and few patients sometimes suffer from dizziness.
