sick with a lame foot

Our 3-4 yr. old female parakeet has been sick lately hanging around the bottom of the cage all puffed up.
We took to a local avian vet who claimed she had an infection and prescribed daily 0.05ml drop of medication. That was last week. The medication does not seem to be doing anything. At first, the bird seemed to be coming around and has since had a set back. In addition, she now has developed a lame foot, red in color, curled up with the nails turning black. Any suggestions?
