Ear infections

My pit bull has had several minor ear infections in the past, but they were always really minor, but now i'm worried. I've searched around but everything i've seen looks nothing like whats going on. In only his left ear there is a large amount slimey, sticky, pale yellow substance in his ear. In addition to this his ear looks bright pink (it looks and feels raw) and there is what appears to be mites in his ear.

I'm quite worried, he's barely a year old, I don't know alot about pit bulls either him being the first one. I've given him a bath and tried to clean the ear out but after a couple of minutes it all just comes back. I would post a photo of the affliction but i'm not able to get it from my phone to my computer. Any ideas will help.

As the moderator said, the best solution is to talk with the vet or ear specialist. But I just want to give my personal opinion, when you search around the internet, it might be around 30 to 40 brand relate to dog ear cleaner product or something to fight infection, the one brand that I always read or heard about is Zymox. It is approved by vets and many dog owners satisfy with the result. But still, you need to consult the vet which kind of Zymox you need to apply. Maybe this article here would be the first step for you to gain some knowledge about best dog ear product to fight infection or regular ear cleaning.

Ear infections

Sounds like yeast and mites. Vet is a good idea like Joe said. My old girl has yeast problems with her ears. I clean them weekly with Epi-Otic by Virbac. Keeps her ears clean but she’s never had mites so you’ll need more than just a good cleaning.

you can use earwash that has tea tree oil (*DO NOT use pure tea tree)
or for a cheap solution apple cider vinegar is good. but will take longer.
you will probably have to clean 2 or 3 times a day till you see improvement.
otherwise, you should see a vet.
