Hi Lou and Welcome!
Try a 50/50 mix of apple cider vinegar and water and wipe out his ears on a regular bases until gone, then maybe once per week. You should also look at feeding a Non-Grain food in case this is a yeast issue.

We haven't had the pleasure to visit your neck of the woods yet! We just visited the South this year but we mostly stay on the West Coast.
We would move there if we could!

Hey she's right, reoccurring ear infections can be directly related to a food allergy, if it's not yeast it's bacterial (my small dog got like 3 one right after another when he was a pup, and he was allergic to the meds it was a huge mess) hope it gets better, keep an eye out for itchy paws or the inner thighs that can also indicate a food allergy
