We have had our African Grey (Rocky) for over twenty years now and about 7 years ago we took him to the vet because around every six months he would get an infection of some sort up inside one of his nostrals.
This would burst and release puss and a little blood then go away for another six months ?
The vet took him in and he returned to us later in the day a bit shaken , as expected and you could see that things had gone on inside his nose !
The vet was not really very sure of what it was or why ..
Anyway , it was a bit swollen , but went down , almost back to normal , but still a bit swollen.
This swelling has never dissappeared around the nostral and has in fact been getting bigger over the last couple of years ? It is now around the size of a half a pea .
It gives him no obvious problems or pain and we just wondered if we should worry about it ?
The puss & blood from inside has not returned.
I have sent a picture ... I hope ?
Many thanks ,
