cockatiel with sore red neck under feeathers?

by Katrina
(Tasmania Australia)

Bella was brought at christmas time 2008 it was about 3 months old.

It now has a red sore spot under the feathers on the neck.

We have put some lice spray stuff on it thought it made a diffrence but could be wrong.

It is still touching it all the time. it seems sore.

What can we do is there something we can put on it and what is causing it?

Can we use detol or salt water or the red stuff I put on the kids mccrucrome or antaseptic spray? or something else? if so how much as I dont want to over dose the bird. Dont know if it is a girl or boy how do we tell?

Cockatiel with sore neck

Aww, poor thing. Dr. B really can not suggest anything because he would need to see the bird in person. He does NOT suggest over the counter remedies, especially when the actual problem has not been diagnosed. Often the "remedies" cause more problems while the actual problem grows worse.

Please take your bird to an avian vet to be examined.
