What do you think?

So my baby caique that I'm feeding has swollen up on the sides of the top beak. I took her to the vet this afternoon who said that she has mites and is treating for that. But when I came home and googles mites, it doesn't look anything like this baby. She is not crusty, just swollen. What do you guys think?

I'm not entirely sure what it could be, but I know it isn't mites. She is cute though haha

My goodness! That sure doesn't look right! Was this an avian vet??? Can't believe he/she would diagnose it as mites when it isn't! I hope he gets better soon!
