Default More Drugs? Need Advice

After repeatedly taking my kitten to the vet for his constant ear scratching and after the antibiotic Ivermectin didn't work for what the vet thought he had at first (sarcoptic mange), he still scratches and I'm supposed to put Tresaderm drops in his ears since his test for yeast and bacteria came back showing he had some yeast and bacteria.

Does anyone have experience with Tresaderm drops for bacteria/yeast?

I'm really worried about further damaging his immune system with more unnatural drugs. I've been reading about natural remedies which include using vinegar as a cleaning agent for the ear.

I would really appreciate to hear anyone's experience with ear problems and what was done. (it's not earmites either and I've stopped feeding dry food and only feed can food now in case its allergies which the vet says he's too young to have)

Hi, I've just replied to your other thread regarding your cat's ear problems. My cat wasn't diagnosed specifically with a yeast / bacteria infection but she displayed similar symptoms as you described in your cat. My vet prescribed Specicare Leo Cat Ear Cleaner to soften & dissolve the wax build up. Like your cat tests for ear mites came back negative & I'm convinced that the wax build up was causing her to scratch her ears so much & shake her head. If you're worried about overloading his system with drugs I'd try ear drops to clear the wax (the ones I mentioned earlier contain glycerol, propylene glycol, polysorbate 80, water, chlorthymol, sodium stearate & sodium lauryl sulphate) and see if that helps. I also recommend that you gently clean your cat's ears daily if he has excess wax in them.
