The preen gland, also called the uropygial gland can also get infected or impacted and the pictures I've seen of that condition look like a pimple or boil. I am having a hard time finding a good image on the web of both healthy and diseased uropygial glands... but if you think it might be blocked or it looks angry and red, you may want to consult your vet. If I find something, I'll post a link.
