    This bird's eyes have become severely infected and swollen, yellow goo is coming from its eyes and nostrils and it smells horrible. It cannot shut its mouth. I've tried applying Vetericyn to its eyes but I don't know if it is helping, thanks.

    This is some sort of sinus or respiratory infection.

    You need to get her on some antibacterial meds and fast! I would suggest Sulfadimethoxine or Duramycin. Long term use Oxytetracycline might also work.
