Is it swollen (like a bubble of liquid)? It looks like an irritation that she's scratched too much an that it could be turning into a hemotoma.
Nah I'm not a whiner. called the vet and they said it may just be an infection from water or a seed because it's just in one ear. I will get some drops for $10 and give them a shot if not I will have to take her in. other than that she is totally fine.
is crazy a vet?
You need to take your dog to the vet and let him/her look in the ear to rule out ear mites or confirm they are there.
He/She can also look at cytology of the ear discharge to determine what ointment might be indicated for treating your dog's ear.
I do not recommend you treat your dog for "mites" with an OTC medication without a vet telling you to.
mites usually involve BOTH ears... uncommon for dogs to have mites and even moreso for dogs older than puppies... so mites would be the LAST thing I would think of... unless I saw them with my own eyes.
The pictures do NOT look like this ear has developed a hematoma - although that can happen.
Nothing will make your vet happier than to hear the suggestion that all this started the last time he was at the vets - should go a long way to engendering good will to be utilized on future visits.
Specific cause of ear inflammation is often elusive - unless there are mites. Sometimes you just have to treat the symptoms such as the inflammation or the secondary infections - like yeast or bacteria.
