    I have a silky her and one of her ears is swollen and there was white "stuff" inside. I squeezed it and some fluid came out, smelled awful so it is probably infected. I managed to get 2 white balls of infection out and have been treating with hydrogen peroxide. Anyone seen this before?

    No, sounds awful. I think I would continue what you're doing and also put her on a respiratory antibiotic like maybe Tylan
