Ears - infected?

How do you know if a bulldog's ear is infected, dirty, or just really waxy?  Thanks!

Usually if its infected...

It will be red inside and they will flip their heads or rub their ears. To clean ears we squirt a little zymox or epi otic right into the ear. Rub it around and then stand back. They will shake the excess moisture and gunk right out.  If there is infection, our vet recommends mometamax.
