Bacterial And Fungal Skin Infections in Birds



Bacterial skin infections are treated with antibiotics, given orally or applied locally. Fungal skin infections,meanwhile, are generally treated with oral medication or by spraying the infected area.




Skin infections can spread from birds to humans and from humans to birds. Therefore, whenever there is infection in the house, care should be taken to prevent an outbreak of the contagion. In addition, the bird should be kept clean and dry, and any skin injury should be properly taken care of to prevent infection.
