The trigeminal nerve is the main nerve controlling sensation in the face.
Trigeminal neuralgia occurs on one side of the face and manifests as excruciating, intermittent pain in the cheek, gums, chin or lips. Conventional medical treatments are available, but none is guaranteed.
Certain home remedies offer hope for pain relief, but there is no known cure. Consult a health care practitioner before initiating any herbal treatment for trigeminal neuralgia.
