Is this canker? Smelly, cheesy crud came out of the inside of her mouth. I believe the black you are looking at is dirt & dried blood. Swelling came down a lot after pus removal. Should I swab with iodine inside her mouth? Treat with fish zole? How much? Thank you for your help.

It's canker. Treat with Fish Zole (Metronidazole) 250mg twice a day for no more than 7 days.
It is contagious to other birds and they are carriers for life. Add acidified copper sulfate to waterers for 3 days once a month to keep it in check. Dosage is 1/4 teaspoon per gallon of water. Do not overdose.

Your other option is to keep her separated from other birds and provide her with her own feeder and waterer. Then you only have to use the acidified copper sulfate 3 days a month with her.
