My GSD puppy has had this ear rash since we got him home 2 weeks ago. Its not from the breeder, none of the other puppies have it, i spoke to the other owners.
Its red little bumps, slightly yellowish, on the inside of his ears. I took him to the vet and he perscriibed Quadritop ointment 3x day. I've been using it for a week now and its only getting worse, and now he is itching his ears. I thought orginally that perhaps he was allergic to some kind of ear cleaner that the breeder was using, but the only thing that I have been using is a moist cotton pad.
Not sure...I saw some puppies this past summer with yellow crusty stuff around the inside part of the ears along the edges. At first the vet's did not know what the rash was...it became worse and I told our friends to try another vet. The vet did take did scrape the skin and it was sarcoptic mange.
It could be hives(red bumps), or is it kind of flakey(would be yellow) or crusty, is there an odour, could be a yeast infection. What breed is it, see if you need antifungal ointment. Ask the vet if there is a poss food allergy.

Thanks everyone ....It turned out to be an allergy to a treat that i was giving him. I kept putting the ointment on 3 times a day, and started to give him 100% pure liver treats, instead of "Natural Choice" and his rash went away. I guess no more Natural Choice treats for Logan.
