Well, my bird has a small red bump on the side of his face,in the part where it is white, specifically on the left side. I have never noticed it but my house keeper has said she has seen it since she has been here when she has been here for about half a month. Can someone respond and tell me if it is harmful.

Dr. B answered this recently for another Macaw owner.

Macaws commonly have allergies and they sometimes present with these red bumps. It can be other things to so it is something that needs to be looked at by an avian veterinarian.

Unfortunately, i have left on vacation and do not have a picture of the bump but the bird is a Blue and Gold Macaw. The bump is around the white part and it could even be seen like a mosquito bite but my family have said that they have seen it for a while
