6 Science Backed Home Remedies for Trigeminal Neuralgia
6. Press Heat or Cold
You can quickly soothe your pain by placing a heat pack or ice pack to the affected area.
For heat pack, place a hot water bag on your cheek for instant relief. You can also try a hot shower or if possible, a hot sauna.
Ice can also help reduce the pain. You can just put an ice bag on your cheek or take some ice cubes inside a piece of fabric and press them on the affected area.
However, ice therapy isn’t suitable for everyone.
For some people, cold triggers the symptom of trigeminal neuralgia. Avoid this method if you’re one of them.
