I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

I dont mind waiting a little longer if there is a wash I can try on her or make up at home be much appreciated to know what I can use on her I've asked around but not had any response shes not managing to clean it herself and warm water only took so much away I blew dry her with warm at a distance hair dryer she loved that so I know drying her not a issue

Hello! My name is***** will be the expert to assist you today with your vet-related questions.

Expert:  Teodora B replied 2 days ago.

Is Luna up-to-date with anti-parasitic control?

Expert:  Teodora B replied 2 days ago.

Is there any chance you could send me a picture with this wald wing/pustules?

Expert:  Teodora B replied 2 days ago.

Based on the information you provided, I suspect we might be dealing with some sort of infection at this stage and any topical treatment (wash, creams, solutions, etc) might not be effective. I think the best way forward would be for Luna to be seen today by a vet for a hands-on examination. It might be the case she requires oral antibiotics(?), but there is no way of telling that till she's been examined. If your local vets are shot, please seek OOH care.
