My granddaughter is on amoxicillin for an ear infection is it OK to rub tree tea oil on the back of her ear? Mixed with warm water?

In brief: Whatever...

It has no plausible reason to affect anything going on in the ear,good or bad.
If this pleases you two and the kid's skin doesn't break out to the process it is fine. You might do as well just painting her nails or giving her a foot rub.

In brief: Topical remedy

Tea tree oil should have no effect on the amoxicillin.
Watch for any signs of skin irritation, e.g. contact dermatitis.
