Hello. Thanks for the question. It sounds like he may be having a contact reaction in his ear. I would try to clean them out with some saline solution. After that, you can use a topical antibiotic like Neosporin on the wounds. That should help soothe them and get them to heal. I would also try some Benadryl (Diphenhydramine). This can help with the irritation and inflammation. The dose in dogs is 1-2 mg per lb body weight. It can be given every 6-8 hours, as needed. Those are some things you can try from home to see if you get it under control. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi Rita Coit,
