It could be fowl pox from the bumps, but I cannot be for sure. Do you have mosquitoes out? Are any other chickens’ affected? Pox lasts about a month, and most healthy chickens will get over it without treatment. There is a vaccine available for those who have not been exposed. Here is a good article to read:
