Could be ear mites. Does it have a scab or hair loss at the back of the neck? A squirt of baby oil in each ear for a couple of days will clear it right up. Ivormectin pour-on also works great - 3 drops on the back of the neck, once.
I didn't know there was a water-soluble baby oil! My baby oil is just scented mineral oil. I agree, the water-soluble wouldn't work. You need the oil to smother the mites. I put mine in a small squirt bottle, suggested by the Goforths, and give them a squirt in each ear. It' really fast and simple.
