Swollen red bump under eye

by kevin

Hello i have a female blue-fronted amazon whos about 27 years old. Shes in good health however i just recently noticed a bump on her lower eyelid. The blump sticks out just beyond her eye and is noticable because it slightly displaces the feathers around it. There is a red spot visible in the skin like a bruise but bright red. Shes not experiencing any pain from it and it doesn't look like a cut because there is no break in the skin. Shes not messing with it either. What should i do?
Thank you for your help!

Her eye is better now. The swelling went away after three days.

This needs to be looked at. If it is rubbing on the cornea of the eye it could cause an ulceration. It may be as simple as an ingrown feather, but it could be more. Act now to prevent serious problems.
