Facial paralysis is a common multiple disease, which can occur at any age.

I. causes of facial paralysis
1. Infectious diseases and ear diseases.
2. Autoimmune reaction and poisoning.
3. Neurogenic and traumatic.
4. Metabolic disorders and vascular dysfunction.
5. Tumor and congenital facial nucleus hypoplasia.
2. Causes of recurrent facial paralysis
With the aggravation of life pressure, many people are in a state of overwork every day. Overwork will cause the decline of immunity. If there is such anger, fear and tension, it is very easy to induce facial paralysis, which is also the reason for facial paralysis.
2. Work pressure and emotion
Too much work pressure and tension is also the cause of facial paralysis. This is because long-term tension and fatigue will cause facial tissue ischemia, hypoxia, and gradually form facial muscle atrophy.

3. Stimulation of cold air and cold water
According to the survey, 65% of the patients with facial paralysis have been directly stimulated by cold air and cold water before the attack, which is enough to prove that the stimulation of cold air and cold water is one of the causes of facial paralysis. The cold weather in winter will make people's resistance at a lowest point, so when encountering cold air and cold water stimulation, the nerve and blood vessels will have spasms, which will easily lead to facial nerve ischemia and edema. It is also the cause of facial paralysis.
