itching and plucking Amazon parrot

You should not spray anything on your bird until you know what is wrong with it. If it is plucking around it's feet also, then it isn't just molting.

Yes, Find an Avian Vet so you can find out if your bird has an allergy or some internal problem causing this behavior. Make sure you see an avian vet, a regular vet does not have the training or experience to treat exotic birds and often kill them accidentally. A vet in my town has killed 4 birds that I know of, and 3 were just from drawing blood wrong.
