Okay. The *best* thing would be to see a vet for what is most certainly an outer ear infection. If that is not an option, you can clean the ears with a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water and cotton balls and order this medication online: Zymox ear drops. You would put 6 drops in each ear once daily for 14 days. You can buy it on amazon and at some pet stores. Clean ears every other day by filling the ear with the vinegar solution and then wiping out with cotton balls.
