Still waiting for my remedy to arrive. It takes long in this country. A friend gave me "bee wise" bought at a pet shop for all skin ailments including fungal infections. It contains bees wax and castor oil. I used it about 4 times yesterday, very little a time because I'm scared of the castor oil. It might be my imagination but it looks a little better and birdie is actually coming out of her cage to sit on my shoulder today. Something she has not done for days. Something in the herbal remedy causes a natural cortisone to form says the blog. It is also recommended to human athletes foot so maybe it can also help.
