I have a question about my dogs ear. I have had dogs with an ear infection a lot of times and this isn't it. My 4 year old yellow lab has something going on in his right ear. the complete underside of his ear keeps cracking and turning red. It is also drying out badly! There is NOT an ear infection smell at all. I do have a bottle of preventative and treatment for ear infections that i use. But these symptoms have reoccurred 2 times in a couple months. Last time I first used A&D ointment to moisturize then the next few days i used an anti-fungal cream on the complete under-ear. It cleared up after about a week. Now its back. It seems to be like a skin yeast. Wondering am i treating it right and what can i do to keep it from happening again and why did this just start happening the last couple months? By the way it does itch but not hurt.
-No rude comments please. I am just asking here first because I dont want to spend a ton of money for my vet to tell me to do the same thing i am already doing which happens quite often.-
Eczema maybe? I don't know, good luck and I hope no one bashes you. It's a good honest question!
