Q. My dog has crusty ears which occurred after the flap of the ear became swollen with fluid. It started when he started shaking his head.

A. Ear hematoma is often a complication of ear infection. Ear infection come first and hematoma is the result of scratching and shaking head. Ear canal infection should be treated with ear drops which you can get from your local vet.
