Mainly it was because when they were handing out potions, medicines, if the patient had a medical reaction to the medicine they could have a chance of catching an illness or at the worst, death. They wore masks to hide identity, so they werent a known man in the area, also so they didnt lose business. Another theory is that they wore the masks because it was widespread that birds spread the plague and if they wore it, this would direct the plague to the mask, away from the victim. Best answer I have thanks.

For some time, including around the time of the Black Plague, the long "beaks" of the bird masks would be stuffed with spices and incense, which was thought to fulfil two purposes - firstly and most importantly, it would cover the stench of death and disease, and some wearers thought that by wearing it they were warding off the diseases.

They wore those mask so they could put herbs in them. They believed at the time that inorder to prevent getting the plague they could just breath in herbs and never actually touch their patient.

they were called plague doctors, they kept herbs and other organic material in the beak of the mask so they don't breath in the virus from the air

AnswerThe masks were made of stiffened cloth and painted to look like bird beaks. One reason for this was that some people thought birds spread the plague, so wearing a bird mask was a sort of reverse charm against it, and another reason was to keep your face and nose as far from the "bad air" as possible to avoid contracting the disease.
