Your bird could have mites, and needs to be taken to an Avian Vet for a checkup right away. Do not use any home remedies or anything you can buy in a pet store. We always recommend taking birds with problems to an Avian Vet for a proper diagnosis and treatment. Never try and treat your bird yourself because you won't know what is wrong, and can not treat an unknown illness. You CAN make matters worse by using home remedies and over the counter medicines. People have even killed their birds doing this kind of thing. So be careful and make sure your bird is always treated by a licensed and trained Avian Vet.
