Based on the information provided, your African Grey Parrot is experiencing ear sensitivity, which may be accompanied by other health issues. Ear sensitivity in birds can be due to various causes, including infections, mites, foreign bodies, or trauma. The fact that your bird is on ear cleanser, otic suspension, and using ear wipes suggests that there has been some treatment for an ear condition already.

At home, you can continue to gently clean the outer ear with the prescribed ear wipes, but avoid inserting anything into the ear canal as this could cause injury. Monitor your bird's behavior closely; signs of discomfort such as head shaking, scratching at the ear, or imbalance could indicate that the ear issue is persisting or worsening.

It's important to ensure your bird's environment is clean and free from drafts, as a stable environment can help prevent further health complications. Offer a balanced diet and fresh water to support overall health. If your bird is showing signs of lethargy, loss of appetite, diarrhea, vomiting, or any other concerning symptoms, these could be indicative of a more serious underlying condition or could be side effects of the ear problem.

If your bird's condition does not improve, or if you notice any of the following symptoms, it would be necessary to seek immediate veterinary care:

- Discharge or bleeding from the ear
- Persistent head tilting or loss of balance
- Increased lethargy or unresponsiveness
- Severe changes in appetite or drinking
- Respiratory distress or labored breathing
- Swelling around the ear or face

These symptoms could signal a severe infection, possible systemic illness, or another urgent medical condition that requires professional attention.

Remember, while at-home care can be supportive, it is not a substitute for professional veterinary treatment, especially if your bird's condition is not improving or is worsening. Close observation and supportive care at home are key, but if you are in doubt about your bird's health, seeking veterinary assistance is always the safest option.
