What to know about facial droop

Facial droop is a common problem, but it’s not always a cause for concern.

It happens because of something called atypicals.

Atypical droop happens when the facial muscles of your face do not fully flex, which is the result of muscles contracting, not relaxing, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Sometimes atypical is also called a soft spot.

In some cases, it may also be caused by a benign condition called epicanthic osis, which occurs when a muscle relaxes.

You can also have a dry or chapped face, especially if you have other health issues like diabetes, high blood pressure or a history of heart disease, according a Mayo Clinic spokesperson.

The Mayo Clinic also says that atypicals can affect your face, lips, chin and eyes, especially the back of your head.

You should seek treatment if you notice this.

If you think you may have atypics, talk with your doctor about it.
