Bell's Palasy. ( Idiopathic facial paralysis) Sudden weakness in the muscles on one half of the face. Bell's palsy may be a reaction to a viral infection. It rarely occurs more than once. Although the exact reason Bell's palsy occurs isn't clear, it's often related to exposure to a viral infection. Viruses that have been linked to Bell's palsy include the virus that causes: Cold sores and genital herpes (herpes simplex) Chickenpox and shingles (herpes zoster)..
