Facial pain is pain that starts in the face and may be caused by a nerve problem, injury, or infection. It may also begin at other places in the body. Although it’s normally due to an injury or a headache, facial pain may also be the result of a serious medical condition.
The most common potential causes of facial pain include:
• facial injury
• oral infection
• skin abscess
How & Why Does Facial Pain Develop?
Facial pain can stem from many things, including dental issues, sinusitis, atypical odontalgia, post-herpetic neuralgia, cluster headaches, or cluster tic syndrome.
