Urgent Scab on my sun conure Zazu's face

Hi all, this is my first post so please correct me if I make any mistakes. My conure Zazu had a fall a couple days ago and everything was fine until today. For backstory, I live with my parents and they just switched out carpeting for hardwood floor so my Zazu has never experienced a fall like this. She has this dark scab and above it a small pinkish bump. I won't be able to take her to the avian specialist until next week because it's so far away and my local vet who usually clips her nails doesn't have any advice.

Does anyone know what I should put on the wound until my appointment? When it initially happened, I used Styptic powder after cleaning it with water. She doesn't flinch when I treat the wound or touch it. I included some pictures but she is really squirmy lol. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :heart:

A fall?? Is your bird clipped?

I can't see any wound either so I can only advise that you limit touching it and keep the area as clean as possible.

No, she isn't clipped. She loves flying around the house. I can only assume that she wasn't used to the new changes of the house yet so she fell. I've been using a hydrogel type spray to keep it clean after she eats and before bed.

Hydrogel? Sorry I am not familiar with that, is it bird safe or is it a human medication?

@Pixiebeak may be familiar with the product you mention??
