talk to your Vet, it may well be a yeast infection but there are also other reasons for problems, as far as the ear drum, that usually happens from improper cleaning, never use a q-tip & don't diagnose it yourself, it is common in floppy eared dogs, I have a Lab & am very familiar with ear problems

Mine are on Taste Of The Wild Pacific Stream.
No grains and was rated #5 on www.dogfoodanaylis.com
$10.00 for 5#bag.(Tractor Supply)
There are more rated #5 & #6.

Also, stay away from foods with wheat & corn.

yeast infections in the ears or on the skin aren't caused by yeast in the food. Generally, they are indicative of an allergy or immune irregularity. This is really something to talk to a good veterinarian about. Perhaps eliminating grains from the diet may help, but so could eliminating the really problematic ingredients like corn, wheat, and soy. Then again, it could be enviromental allergies causing the problem. Or foreign debris in the ear canal. Or countless other possible causes.
