My female is obsessed with her feet too. She also almost always holds her right foot up in the air when she's perched. If it keeps being a problem try to locate a container of bag balm. It's super cheap, lasts forever, is completely natural, and I use it constantly on all kinds of ailments on all kinds of animals. Horses, dogs, cats, birds... I've used it on small scrapes and mystery rashes on all of them. In addition to cleaning and disinfecting the cut, it's a pretty gloopy product so it doesn't just rub off of them, and it creates a sort of barrier so that nothing new gets it.
We usually just smear some on an old perch then put Apple on it to get her feet coated, it's done a lot for the dry skin on her feet. When we first got her she was actually chewing them enough to cause sores.
