Dr B can not help you because he would have to see your bird in person to examine it and write a prescription for your bird. There are not any safe over the counter meds, especially since what is wrong has not been diagnosed. (What bacteria strain etc.)

Do a search through the link that is on our Find an Avian Vet page and try to find an avian vet within driving distance. If nothing else, call one in your country, since an avian vet there will know what is available in your country.
