Augie had a yeast infection at about 4 months of age too. The vet cleaned out gobs of hair and gunk, it was treated, and (knock on wood) he has been free of infections since. I pull the ear out from the opening of his ear canal, a few hairs at a time, when it looks like it is covering the canal, to keep it open.
Finn also has had yeast infections - numerous ones - starting at about 7-8 months until about 16 months or so. I finally had him allergy tested, changed his food to one that didn't contain the foods he tested positive for, and I put drops in his ears a couple of times per week, per his vet's instructions. Since the food change and the drop regimen, he is doing much better in that regard.
