Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 15 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.
I am so sorry Sylvester is experiencing this. This is an unfortunate and reasonably common scenario, though. When we have recurrent ear infections +/- dermatitis, then this usually indicates there is an underlying allergy. The most common allergy to affect the ears and face is a food allergy. But it is not as simple as changing brands of food. You need to discuss with your vet doing a hypoallergenic food trial with a prescription hyper allergenic diet for 8-12 weeks. If at the end of this time there is no relapse of ear infections or facial dermatitis, then this is the most likely cause.
In the meantime, you will need to get more ear treatment from your vet and probably have Sylvester seen to discuss treatment for his dermatitis which may require an antibiotic and a corticosteroid.
Good job using the ear cleanser. If yo have left over ear medication you could resume until you can get Sylvester seen
