Hello, this is difficult to picture
....could you take a photo? Every other day? so that we can take a look together and see how this issue develops.

Meanwhile, I would give extra vitamins or fresh vegs and fruits to boost the natural immune system.

IMHO, adding vitamins to drinking water is not a great choice. Assure you are changing the water often during the day. Only fresh water at night.

Photos are alway difficult as lighting can change coloring (lighter /darker). Based on the Photo, you may want to consider misting (from above) your Parrot several times a week, if your Parrot is not bathing regularly.

Where are you located in this huge World as molting is a Seasonal occurrence and what region of the World you live can help define whether you are seeing a Seasonal based molting or something else.
