    It very well could be fowl pox. The bubbling you see with peroxide isn't 'infection coming out'. It's simply a chemical reaction that occurs when the liquid comes into contact with blood cells. There is no treatment for dry fowl pox unless the lesions become infected. It will run its course.

    Mostly mosquitos carry the virus. It is not transmittable to humans.
