tingling in face
Hi there

I have this tingling feeling in the right side of my face - for about a week now.
It is not something that i use - lik cream or so, because it also occurs in the inside of my lips and in my nose and further on just around the right side of my face.

Can you maybe tell me what this could be?

Thank you

Hallo Liesl
this can be caused by an irritation of a facial nerve but some diseases like Bells palsy or Herpes zoster can start with similar symptoms. Rather see your doctor for an examination to see if you need referral to a neurologist?
