HI there.

the best thing is to have your vet examine this to be sure this is a yeast infection. then they can prescribe an anti fungal ointment and possibly oral anti fungals to treat this. For now, however, the best thing you can do is to purchase a product at the pharmacy over the counter called Swimmer's Ear. Apply this product every 8 hrs to the affected ears. Massage this down and clean the excess with a kleenex. This will dry out the area in the ear canal so the organisms cannot grow.

Good Luck!!
