parakeet with swollen nares

My female parakeet has swollen nares that have been growing larger over the past few months. She is able to breath, and acts typical. It looks like it would be an infection, but there is no puss or blood.

Female budgies develop cere hypertrophy which is related to sexual maturity and hormones. However to be sure this is not an infection you need to have your bird seen by an avian veterinarian immediately.
