|Having had more experience that I ever wanted with Golden Retriever ears and humid climates, I would suggest you look for an ear cleaner with salicylic acid in it. This promotes drying and removal of dead skin cells in a gentle manner. That's why you find it in meds for human psoriasis and dandruff.
I have also found that ear cleaners with stuff like propylene glycol stay too moist for my liking.
I have been forced to use ear cleaner daily to get some problems under control. Also, be sure to use something after your doggie gets in water! (You probably know that.)
I know that tying back ears used to be done for Cockers, etc. way back, but I have not resorted to it -- and as was said by other posters, it does make me nervous.
You are a lovely RED Irish Setter, by the way!
