Many people have a sense of the arm or leg "goes to sleep." Numbness is a description used to give a description of the tingling and low-down of sensation. Trigeminal nerve can take controls of sensation in face. This nerve contains of 3 branches.

Lyme disease is a disease transmitted by a spirochete bacteria like organism that lives in a deer tick. Also the disease is transmitted to humans by a tick bite, usually in the summer period. Maryland Medical Center University reports that the Lyme disease symptoms begin with rash in the shape of a bull's eye and usually appear 1 to 2 weeks after the bite. And if it is not treated, the infection goes away and hurts the nervous system. Hence, it causes tingling or tingling in the facial nerves, a condition called Bell's palsy. Antibiotics are a strong treatment for Alzheimer Lyme. UMMC suggests using an insect repellent which has DEET if you tried to venture into the forest during the summer to avoid tick bites.

In people who have got chickenpox, herpes zoster virus could reactivate, causing a disease called shingles. Reactivation of the virus travels along nerve roots, causing numbness and pain. A 2004 an article has been published in the [Minerva-Stomatologica] noticed that the virus has the ability to go away and affects the nerve of trigeminal, causing numbness in the face. And according to MayoClinic.com, shingles is more likely if the patient had chickenpox was a year ago, more than 60 years or who have a weakened in immune system. With no any kind of treatment, stains and painful red pustules always trace the tingling and numbness.
