Fungal infection?
by: Tracie

I am sorry this is happening and that the vet didn't help you the first time. Did the vet actually find a fungal infection, or did the vet think it was a fungal infection? Did the vet tell you how this happened and how to prevent it from continuing or happening again?

I suggest you Find an Avian Vet if at all possible, because regular vets often hurt more than help birds in my experience.

How do you know the ointment burned? Is it possible that the vet guessed what might be wrong and prescribed the wrong treatment? Dr B can not help, because he would just be guessing and he can't even prescribe a treatment over the Internet.

Please go back to the vet, if he/she is knowledgeable of birds, or find another vet that can examine your bird and prescribe a treatment according to a diagnosis and not a guess, if that is what happened last time.
