Exam helpful: It is hard to tell from the info you've given if the 2 issues are related or not. Sometimes people can get a viral infection like shingles that could affect both your ear and your eye. However, usually otitis externa (outer ear infection) usually resolves with drops e.g. sofradex + keeping the ear dry. When you say eye infection, do you mean the lids or is the eye itself red?
