by these sorts of products did you mean the anti-fungal nose cream? i have double checked, it doesn't have anything like that in it (tea tree and such would definitely set my alarm bells off). it is a simple prescribed cream.
i haven't tried any new foods. while I was cleaning his cage, I found some odd coloured patches on one of his wooden houses, which I took out immediately - based on the look of it, it may be fungal and the culprit, but I obviously this is just a guess.
I haven't really given him anything new in a while, and I've been using the same bedding as ever, so I'm not sure if it's an allergic reaction (but if it doesn't improve I may have to give a different kind of bedding a shot - right now I use aubiose).
