Dino with pimple

My rainbow lori has a little pimple on the side of his eye. I notice it 3 days ago. Maybe i didn't see it earlier, but it looks like it is getting bigger. what should i do? He is a very happy bird, 9months old, he is always out with me, we spent a lot of time together. It seems like it doesn't borders him. But he eats my food and his Lori nectar and lori powder. I will stop giving him my food. Is there some natural household medicine i can treat him with?

I have attach a picture of Dino's pimple.
thank you

You need to have your bird seen by an avian veterinarian. This is not something that can be treated at home. You should go as soon as possible. Birds need to be seen annually for well bird check ups and vaccinations. Work to get your bird on pellets, too. Pellets should make up 60% of the diet for lories, then power and fresh fruits and vegetables to round out the diet.
