Stroke like facial expressions due to pollen allergy
My sister has recently developed a stroke like facial expression which she says is not painful at all. Its just that her face does not look right. She is fit and healthy in her mid thirtys. Could this be a new kind of allergic reaction?

Vani, it sounds like she might be suffering from Bell’s palsy. The best would be for her to see her GP and find out what it is, because it doesn’t sound like an allergy. Good luck.
