What is Ramsay Hunt syndrome?

Ramsay Hunt syndrome is a neurological condition caused by varicella zoster virus

The nerves that go through your face go through pretty narrow, bony canals, and when they’re inflamed they swell and lose the ability to function.

The virus can linger in your body for your entire life, even long after you have recovered from chickenpox, and reawaken to irritate and inflame the nerves in your face.

The syndrome is officially known as herpes zoster oticus;  name comes from the neurologist James Ramsay Hunt, who first described the illness.

Justin revealed that he has half face paralysis
