WHAT IS RAMSAY HUNT SYNDROME? THE RARE COMPLICATION OF shingles that leads to facial paralysis

Ramsay Hunt syndrome is a complication of shingles, caused by the same virus as chickenpox (VZV), which can lead to facial paralysis.

The virus reactivates after years of dormancy and causes inflammation and irritation of the facial nerves.

VZV is harmless unless reactivated and when this happens new symptoms will appear.

The virus can be reactivated when the immune system is weakened and less able to fight infection. Stress is often a trigger.
