Could you post photos of her head? I'm curious about what's going on with her mouth. I wonder it she has a temporal gland infection on both sides, in which case she would need a vet.

What temperatures are you keeping a heat lamp at? Ideal temps for crested are between 72-78. They don't tolerate temps over 80 well and get heat stressed at temps over 85 and can potentially die if temps stay over 85 for very long over get much warmer than that. If your lamp is warm it might be why she never uses it and why she is burying herself in the coolest part of the cage. If the lumps are inside on the roof of her mouth they may be normal calcium reserves. If they are something else I would get her to a vet immediately.
