Lovebird has red irritated area under wing

(Largo, Fl. USA)

Yesterday i noticed at times my lovebird was a little sensitive when i picked him which is not normal for him. Today when he was flying to his cage i noticed a red area under his wing. So once i got him into a position that i was able to get a better view it was worse than i thought it was. He has a red irritated almost raw looking area under his wing closest to his body.

He is still flying, eating and drinking as normal but didnt know if there was something i could do to help or it is something that a vet must look at. He is monitored when he is out of his cage which is most of the day. The only time when he is strictly put in his cage is when i am not home. So, if you could help me i would appreciate it. He is approx 2 1/2 yrs old.
Thanks,
Lisa

I suggest you have an Avian Vet look at it, a diagnosis would need to be made in person.
