I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please clarify "Onto ear..."Which breed is Teddy? Can you upload a photo(s) of representative skin to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see the icon) or you can use an external app such as I can be more accurate if I can see what you're seeing. It sounds as if Teddy will need to see his vet if only to have his ear tested for the presence of bacteria and yeast, thoroughly irrigated, and then packed with the appropriate ointment.
