yeast infection in ear?

My husband has had some type of infection in his ear for about 2 weeks.  He's seen two different doctors, and each has said something different (and prescribed something different).  Most recently, he was told that he has a yeast infection in his ear and prescribed dyflucan.  I've been looking around on the net and not finding any info regarding such a thing (although, I now understand that it is a chronic problem in dogs...but my husband is not a canine...)  I would really appreciate some advice.  We've already spent over $300.00 and he's not getting any better.  (His ear started with pain, followed by drainage (including blood-- but the doc said his eardrum did not burst), now his ear has been plugged for a week....
any help would be appreciated,
thanks
