Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
If the tingling in the face is not bothering you too much I would not worry.
These tingling sensations / burning sensations can be due to a viral infection or irritation of the trigeminal nerve that gives sensations to the face.
Usually these symptoms go away in a few days to a couple of weeks time.
If these symptoms are severe and persistent or if you develop severe pain along with these symptoms then you will require additional treatment.
Otherwise this is not something to worry about at the present moment considering your symptoms presently.
Are you with me?
Yes, so should i be taking some antibiotics?
No antibiotics required.
Antibiotics are usually only given when there is a bacterial infection.
For a viral infection we just wait and see usually.
ok, how long should i leave it before i see my gp?
If you have any addition symptoms or worsening symptoms appearing.
