Default Scaly feet and eyelids problem

Hello!
We've already introduced ourselves with my female budgie, Musia, on the Introductions forum Here is the link: https://talkbudgies.com/introductions...usias-mom.html

It's been two months as Musia has developed some weird scale under her nail and on the side of her foot. Also, three days ago, I have noticed that she has a weird overgrowth on her eyelid. I've been oiling her feet for about a week and a half already (that's why her feathers look so messy and weary on the photo), but nothing really changes. She also is molting at the moment, so she generally has a little weary look.

We don't have an avian vet in Baku, and a common one would just reject to examine the bird, so I really do need your advice. I have also been looking for ivermectin in our pharmacies and haven't found the medication yet...

So, this is the eye where the overgrowth appeared:


It looks like this from the side:


I am also a little concerned about the other eye, too, beacuse it looks like it would develop the same scale in a while:


And here is the scale under her nail:



She is a little grumpy now and won't get out of the cage, but I guess she just has her bad feathers days, because she is still chirping, playing with her bell and food, and definitely has a very good appetite!

Hi again,

I see what you mean with the little bumps around the eye area, it does look that mites are burrowing there.
I'm not seeing signs of mites on the beak/cere nor on the feet and I fail to see the scale underneath the nail. From the photos the whole feet and toenails look good.

Since you can't use the oil on the eyelids, and it's difficult for you to get Ivermectin, you can try to order it online: https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Birds/Bea...har+ivermectin

Hi aluz, thank you for your suggestion!

However, I am afraid that the medication could dramatically worsen her health condition, taking into account that Musia has chronic polyuria. Is there a risk that her kidneys could fail from the use of ivermectin? I have read that it is not very bird-friendly.

Here, it's an older photo of her foot (sorry for the quality, it's a screenshot from the video), you can see this weird bump under her nail that disturbs her from putting her finger straightly on horizontal surface. And she actually has some white spikes at the end of the bump. But the weird thing is that neither paraffin nor olive or sunflower seed oil didn't change its form and condition at all.

I agree with Aluz regarding her eyes, but I see what you mean about the bump under her nail. However, it's perfectly normal and nothing to worry about! All budgies have the bump under their nail, it's the equivalent of our fingertip

Maybe you can call them and see if they don/t have ivermectin, ask replacement, it is important to be antiparasit for birds, than check here can you use it instead (I understand how it is hard to find foreign products, we are not allowed to import medicine, chemical, food, all sort of goods) It is just my suggestion.

When my sister had a problem with budgie/s leg, she also put some oil on it, but it was essentially wrong, since with rubbing leg on feathers, they become greasy and loose their function (latter vet told her that). I really think somebody should look at your girl and give you proper advice. In my sister case it was an inflammatory process cured with antibiotics. I am trying to say I would do everything to try to find avian vet, or even vet who know more about birds. Our experts here can give you advice only by photo and I think it is not the same.
EDIT: Besides, vets in Baku know your medications which you can latter check here
