Default Ear Cleaning Problems

Vader is awful about getting his ears cleaned, it takes two of us to pin him down because he gets flailing and mouthing so bad. One ear is significantly dirtier than the other, why we don't know but he's dug it until it's scratched open in a few spots.

Any ideas for a way to get him to stop digging at it? We've cleaned it, it just gets dirty again from him shoving his foot in it with the scabs itching and is just a repeating cycle. I have the ear solution from the vet for our Floppy Ear's dirty ears, but all of these have alcohol to help with the drying so he just howls and rubs his ear against more stuff.
