What is Ramsay Hunt Syndrome
According to experts, the syndrome is a viral disease caused by the same chickenpox virus, varicella-zoster, which can attack the facial and auditory nerves. Symptoms often vary. Redness in the neck area, swelling and vesicles on the skin may appear, as well as facial paralysis. This explains why patients find it difficult to close their eyes and even eat.
Infectious expert Luiz Otávio da Fonseca, from Paraná Clínicas, heard by news portal R7, explained that the disease “is the result of reactivation of latent infection by the Varicella-zoster virus”.
Symptoms last several weeks and the disease may leave sequels. The sooner treatment with corticitis and antivirals is started, the greater the chances of a speedy recovery.
Infection experts also suggest that the sequelae may be reversible or irreversible, depending on the case. He also says that physical therapy sessions can help with treatment and recovery.
In addition to Ramsay Hunt syndrome, the singer had made public the picture of worsening Lyme disease, a type of infection caused by ticks, in early June.
