A storekeeper gave me potassium permanganate crystals powder for lice and mites treatment of my tiel! Is it safe and helpful?

No it is not. This chemical burns their skin if it is left on, it also stains their feathers because it is bright purple. I don't know why you were given this as it is often used to stop bleeding and is not a parasite treatment.

You need to go and get a mite and lice spray treatment from a vet.

I really had no clue why on earth a storekeeper will give me pottasium permanganate, I knew it's harsh on their skin! I won't use this thing and will get a safe lice and mites spray!
