Moulting and itching

It seems to me that Baby has been in a severe moult for almost a year. His feathers are coming in but most is grey down. I have been watching him to see what is going on and I think he is itching so bad that he continues plucks. He has no bald spots but he is not getting the full feathers back either. I have decided to give him showers more often which I know should help. I do know that there are remedies for birds who itch bad but I have no clue what they are called or where to get them. Anyone who has feedback on this, please let me know!!

Thanks

Yes there is a place: Your veterinarian. Even if you find such products or medications online it is not worth it as you cannot choose the right medication without the proper diagnosis. Many pets become severely ill or die because of well meaning owners who think they can treat their ailments at home. Se a vet.
