After de-winterizing bathroom faucet doesn't flow

Help! I am the least mechanically inclined person on the planet, and when something doesn't work I obsess. All faucets initially worked fine including the bathroom when clearing antifreeze. I tried to switch on the water heater, and the red light came on and then off, so I began to check and turn the petcocks. I don't think they're the culprit because the other faucets all work fine. All faucets in kitchen, commode and shower faucet in bath flow fine. Bathroom air just a small dribble. I had it winterized while other work wac completed at the shop. What now?

Try unscrewing the end of the faucet, and make sure the screen isn't blocked by debris before panicking further.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Go ahead and clean the rest. That calcium and lime buildup is quite common. This is a regular maintenance well as flushing the water heater annually. The minerals originate in the incoming water and precipitate out in the HW tank.
