    I have seen pox (in pictures), usually on the outside of a bird, but do they ever appear on the inside like this? Pox is supposed to run its course in a week or two.

    Duh! Yes, could also be wet pox. Had that here in 2013, but only the chickens had it. Definite possibility if the OP still has mosquitoes around.

    We haven't seen him drinking so we put water in a syringe and give it to him twice a day

    He needs about 60 ml/cc about three times a day, put the Kaytee in it for nutrition. Meds can also be administered this way.

    The whole side of his face is ballooned out and he can't open his eye. I have sterile scalpels, should I try and cut it open?
