Ear infections are sometimes caused from water trapped in the ear canal. The damp environment creates al breeding ground for bacteria and fungus, often leading to painful sensitivity, redness, swelling and infection. Dogs with ear flaps are the most affected since the flaps cut air circulation and trap moisture.
Take care when bathing your dog that water and excess ear cleaning solution do not get into the ears. When you bathe any dog you should place cotton in their ears to prevent water from entering the ear canal, and the ear area (especially on those dogs with ear flaps) must be completely dry so as not to provide a damp environment favored by bacteria and fungus.
You may want to seek help from your vet as ear infections can become quite nasty very quickly.
Hope this helps !
