I was just at the vet today for a yeast infection in the ear. I love my vet and she doesn't push a lot of meds and prefers more preventable/natural treatments. She is against using one of the drops that is antibacterial/antifungal/corticosteroid. yes, it will make every ear infection instantly better, but then you can get really resistant infections that are difficult to treat. She gave me "burow's solution" to use which is a very very mild, natural antiseptic/anti-inflammatory. She also said rinsing the ears with ear wash daily or even twice a day and drying them well will also work. She said trimming the ear hair or plucking is controversial. In some dogs it causes more inflammation. I do it because the dogs don't mind it and it does seem to increase air flow in the ear.
