Hello and thank you for using this site to help you.

You can try Zymox that is sold online and it can help with bacterial, fungal , or yeast infections.

Sometimes though something stronger is needed and this can only be given through your Vet.

If this has happened before you may be able to call your Vet and ask for a prescription.
