Ear problems

Well both dogs are having issues with there ears.  I noticed yesterday evening that Sadie's ears are really red with some very small scabs which are a result of scratching I guess.  Charlie had a spot on his ear that was a scab, well Sadie licked it off and there's a big red bump there.  I'm guessing Sadie has gotten ear mites, only thing I can think of with Charlie is possibly a tick bite.  We give them Frontline regularly up until the first couple of frosts.   Anybody got any ideas on what could look like a bubble that's red on Charlie's ear?  This is on right at the side, not really in the ear canal itself.  Sadie's ears are red down in the canal itself.

If they are red, irritated and smell a bit foul - could be yeast.   Scabs can be from the itching.   Best IMO to take to the Vet to get a swab and see if its Yeast, Mites or bacteria.  Most likely yeast, which can be fixed by a common antibiotic ear drop.    

Best to find out the culprit, so you can get to the root of the problem to maintain solution.

Good Luck!!
