    I have tried treating him with antibiotic ointment, but no luck. He has had a discharge coming from the ear. Anyone have an idea for a home remedy?

    Thanks,

    If there's no blood in the discharge, try this:

    Blue Power Ear Wash Recipe:

    16 Oz. Isopropyl Alcohol

    4 Tablespoons Boric Acid Powder

    16 Drops Gentian Violet Solution 1%

    Mix together in alcohol bottle and shake well.

    Shake this solution every time you use it to mix the Boric Acid Powder.

    Flush ears with solution as needed.
